Sunday Salon

This past week we went to North Carolina for my brother-in-law's wedding. We had a week of festivities with family (ours and the bride's) and lots of friends. Let me ask you... what relation would you say my brother-in-law's new wife is to me? I sort of assumed we'd be sisters-in-law but realized recently we don't technically have any relation except that we are married to brothers. Would you refer to her as a sister-in-law anyway? This is a pic of Jason and me at the wedding reception. It was held in the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh which was a beautiful and unique venue.

Anyway, as always, I didn't read quite as much as planned during the getaway. I did start reading The Sparrow and had already been reading The Stand. We spent some of our driving time (about a 10 hour drive each way) listening to B. J. Novack's One More Thing on audio, and believe it or not I have already written my review! I will post that soon. Yesterday I also finished reading the book of essays, Bad Feminist. Last night was book club, and we read Beautiful Ruins. I read and loved it last year and was going to do audio this time around, but I only made it through about half. It seems the consensus was that everyone loved it too. That's about it in reading. Hope you have a great week!

If I can get through Wool, I'm going to read The Sparrow. I've always wanted to. I've been reading so slow lately. And I loved The Stand and Beautiful Ruins...you have some great reading lined up!

Yay! Nice picture. Welcome back. I think you're definitely sisters in law. :)

Yes, she would be your sister-in-law!

I didn't get much reading done because of this horrible headache. I think I managed to read about two chapters last night but that's it. I hope to start The Bone Clocks tonight.
