The Sunday Salon: Because of Winn-Dixie; Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Sleigh; Mexikid: A Graphic Memoir; and Stickler Loves the World


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

I'm tired, everybody. I have been traveling almost every week since September, and I'm tired. I'm tired and I don't think I'm going to do any more traveling this year...Fingers crossed.

I've been reading a few kids' books, and these are all fantastic, some of my favorite reads of the year. A new Pigeon book by Mo Willems...a graphic novel memoir about a trip the author and his family took to Mexico when the author was a kid...a creature who loves his world...and the wonderful Because of Winn-Dixie...

I'm starting my 2024 reading early, as I always do, with a plan to finish the last page of each of ten books on the first day of next year. I've got three nonfiction books going now, but I will be adding some other books soon.

What I Read Last Week:

Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo

Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Sleigh by Mo Willems

Stickler Loves the World by Lane Smith

Mexikid: A Graphic Memoir by Pedro Martín

What I'm Reading Now:

How to Know a Person: The Art of Seeing Others Deeply and Being Deeply Seen by David Brooks

Live Your Best Life: 219 Science-Based Reasons to Rethink Your Routine

What if Jesus Was Serious? A Visual Guide to the Teachings of Jesus We Love to Ignore

What I Posted Last Week Here at Readerbuzz:

Author David Brooks spoke with Action for Happiness host Dr. Mark Williamson about his new book, How to Know a Person, which I am reading now. If you have any interest in making deeper connections with others, I encourage you to listen to this video.

I began to list 3 Good Things every day during the pandemic. Now I've established a regular routine of writing down my 3 Good Things. Here are 3 Good Things from last week:

Good Thing #1:

Wyatt and Annie did 
some fancy baking and decorating
last weekend when I stayed with them.

Good Thing #2:

The lights at Santa Land in East Texas.
