...and then it hit...
There I was at Literacy Night, greeting parents and students, helping them find books at the Book Fair, dressed as my favorite book character, Fancy Nancy, and---BOOM!---I was overcome with a huge wave of nausea. I spent the rest of the evening in the (unwanted) company of a stomach bug.
I didn't feel so fancy anymore.
I stayed home from work on Friday. Folks, this is the first time since I started working in 1973 that I called in sick. How bad did I feel? I had three packages of books that arrived in the mail, and I didn't even open them. I slept most of the day.
Happily, I woke up Saturday and felt much, much better. Happily so, as Saturday is my granddaughter's second birthday party.
As you might expect, I didn't finish reading anything this week.
I did get a lot of new books in:
Next week will be a double whammy: my birthday and the Texas Book Festival! Hurray!
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.

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and recap the past week.
Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.
It is now being hosted here.
Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which you can share the books you've acquired.
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from! I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted at The Book Date.
