Another Sunday, another Salon. Sunny, warm days here in Portland. I'm anticipating a trip to the beach next weekend with some Library Thing friends, our first face-to-face, so exciting! We'll be staying at Sylvia Beach Hotel - a book lovers' paradise. My partner and I have booked the Alice Walker room; another friend will be in the F. Scott Fitzgerald Room.
I have my new bookshelves installed! And they're rapidly filling up! There's another just like this one on the other side. It's wonderful to get my books out of boxes and crates - though a little intimidating to actually see all those unread titles.
Lots of reading this week, not much time for posting. So here's a pictorial of past, current and future reads.
Here's what I've read or am reading so far for Orange July. I finished We Need to Talk About Kevin yesterday and must say it's quite a disturbing book - rather like watching a train wreck, awful to witness but riveting. I felt emotionally drained at the end - and the writing is so good. Now I've picked up something much lighter, A Short History of Tractors in Ukranian.
This is what's left of Orange July after Tractors. So much good reading ahead. I don't know that I'll get to all of these at the rate I'm going, but even half will be heavenly.
Other enticing titles await after July...
