The Sunday Salon: Four Five-Star Reads This Week...Around the World in 80 Books...Lessons in Chemistry...Patient Zero...and Happy for You

 





Our granddaughter Bailey delivered a fantastic valedictorian speech. Here are her final words: "If you could only sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet, how important you can be to those you may never even dream of... There's something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person." 





I had an exceptional reading week. Yes, four 5-star reads and one 4-star read. Exceptional.

I'm happy you joined us here at the Sunday Salon. Sunday Salon is a place to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. It's a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there. 


Some of the things we often talk about at the Sunday Salon:

  • What was your week like?
  • Read any good books? Tell us about them.
  • What other bookish things did you do?
