How odd is this? Here's what I finished last week: Edith Hamilton's Mythology and The Desert Fathers: Sayings of the Early Christian Monks. I loved both of them, by the way. The links take you to my reviews at Goodreads, if you want to know more.
I'm currently reading Fifty Things That Aren't My Fault by the creator of the Cathy comic, and A Gentleman in Moscow. Plus, of course, Don Quixote and Jude the Obscure.
The 'My Own Books' Reading Challenge? It sounds like it will be quite fun. The goal is to try to read 1-10 of your own books by May 15th. You are asked to make a list of ten books you own and write the titles on separate pieces of paper. You randomly draw names of titles to create the order you are to read. You read a book and then post about it and add the link to a linky so others can visit and comment. If it sounds interesting, join in at Anne's My Head is Full of Books.
The longlist for the Women's Prize for Fiction has been announced. Check it out here.
Baking, photography, drawing, and other projects...
I tried Apple Spice Muffins this week. Meh. Just meh. On the plus side, however, five apples made 96 mini-muffins.
The Sunday Salon
I have had a nice round 50 responses to my Sunday Salon post. The results?
I was most fascinated by the answers to the third question; 60% of you have been blogging for more than 10 years!
The last question, the most important question, had scattered responses: some people want to keep the Facebook group, and some would like to change Sunday Salon to a linky on a blog. I decided, for now, to go with popular opinion: I will keep the Facebook group and I will offer a linky here.
I would be very happy if you would spread the word about the Sunday Salon. Encourage others to post here and/or on Facebook. Post a graphic on your blog or Facebook page or Instagram.
My first linkup for Sunday Salon is here. If you wish to also post a link at Facebook, you can also do that. My hope is that you will post here and/or at FB and then visit other bloggers; Sunday Salon is to encourage conversations about books and book-ish things.
