I finished five books last week. My favorites were Hard Times and How the Word is Passed (you really need to read How the Word is Passed, if you haven't), but I also enjoyed The Stardust Thief a lot (after I finally got into it, about a third of the way in).

Here’s information about the process from the website...
I'm a National Book Festival Ambassador! (Yes, and you can be one, too...) I couldn't resist becoming a National Book Festival Ambassador for the festival that begins on September 3 and runs over the Labor Day weekend. It's in person this year, but portions will also be online.
Some parts of the festival will begin before the in-person event. The one I'm most excited about is seeing and hearing Clint Smith, author of How the Word is Passed, on Tuesday, August 23 from 8-9 pm EDT.
For more information about the festival and/or to become a festival ambassador, take a look at the website here.
Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:
Good Thing #1
We visited Quintana Beach County Park and
I saw 9 new-to-me birds, including this Ruddy Turnstone.
Good Thing #2
I tried my latest Best Chocolate Chip Cookie in the World recipe out on the book club this week.
They acknowledged the superiority of this cookie.
Good Thing #3
though I'm still the little duck going right when everyone else goes left.
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?
- What else is going on in your life?
