On my nightstand
Stack of books on Italy
New books from the library
Stack of children's mysteries
Partial view of books under one bed
Books on another nightstand
Books read (Yippee!) but that need to be reviewed (Sigh)
Books hidden behind my rocking chair,
saved for my Little Library
Books under another bed
And I haven't shared the stacks

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....
That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book. Click here to join the Salon.
