The Sunday Salon: Helping Out at the Quintana Neotropical Bird Sanctuary This Weekend

I guess I've hit rock bottom---lol; I finished only one small book this week, and it was one of the first chapter books I first read by myself when I was five years old, The Bobbsey Twins: Merry Days Indoors and Out.

Silas Marner by George Eliot (Chapter-a-Day Classics Challenge)

Isaac's Storm: A Man, a Time, and the Deadliest Hurricane in History by Erik Larson (Naturalist Book Club)

The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandre Dumas (Classic)

Poverty by America by Matthew Desmond (Nonfiction)

Birding Without Borders: An Obsession, a Question, and the Biggest Year in the World by Noah K. Stryker (Nonfiction)

The Mountains Under Her Feet by Catherine Vance (Historical Fiction)

Last week I posted here at Readerbuzz:

The Sunday Salon: Home From the TLA Conference, But Still On the Go

The First 10 Books I Randomly Grabbed from My TBR Books Shelf

What Can You Learn About a Person From Their Bookshelves? A Look at the Bookshelves of an Austin Airbnb

I'm looking forward to hearing from a hometown author, Catherine Vance, at a Meet and Greet on Sunday, May 7 at 2 pm. Cathy will be reading from her new novel, Mountains Under Her Feet, at Rae’s Reads, 1303 College Drive, Alvin, Texas. Hope you will stop by if you are in the neighborhood.

Author Abraham Verghese will be speaking Monday night at Inprint in Houston. His new book, The Covenant of Water, was just named the latest Oprah Book Club read.

I'm out there this weekend,
watching the thousands of migratory birds
that are crossing the Gulf of Mexico
and stopping at Quintana to refuel.

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?
