but I am thrilled to be heading back to work in two more weeks....
BOOK-A-DAY & PARIS IN JULY
In the meantime, I'm reading like a librarian on Death Row. I read...wait for it...probably a new record...
15 books last week!
Of course, lots of them were children's picture books, but nevertheless, I'm proud. I've read tons of wonderful Paris in July books. I've also made lots of progress on my 1001 Children's Books You Must Read list this summer, and, happily, I've now read 602 of the books. I'm pretty sure I'll complete my goal of reading a book-a-day this summer, too.
WHAT I'M READING NOW
The first three are for Paris in July: The Dud Avocado, Bon Voyage, and Curiosities of Paris.
I'm working on D'Aulaires' Book of Norse Myths for 1001. I saw Imagine Wanting Only This on a blog. And Window is a reread for a new feature I've been meaning to start for months (years?) called Tiny Treasures.
How about you? Are you sad summer is winding down? Are you reading anything I should read? I hope you'll share here!
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.
