The Sunday Salon: The Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians; World of Pies; and The Patchwork Girl of Oz


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. 

It was wonderful to be home this week and do regular things---birdwatching, riding my bike, enjoying Happy Hour with my friend, spending time with my writing friends, butterfly monitoring, going out to eat lunch with my dad, and reading. A lot of reading. I finished three good books, nothing heavy, though a lot of Secret Lives of Booksellers and Librarians takes on the current hostile atmosphere toward books here in America.

What I Read Last Week:

World of Pies by Karen Stolz (Novel)

The Patchwork Girl of Oz by L. Frank Baum (Children's Fantasy)

What I'm Reading Now:

Zorba the Greek by Nikos Kazantzakis (Novel)

Funny Story by Emily Henry (Novel)

The Bed of Procrustes: Philosophical and Practical Aphorisms by Nassim Nicholas Taleb (Nonfiction)

What I Posted Last Week Here at Readerbuzz:

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:

I participated in Global Big Day on May 11.
I saw 25 species of birds in my own yard that day.
Worldwide, eBirders reported seeing 7,726 species of birds.

Good Thing #2:

I may declare my yard to be a wildlife refuge!
One day this week I saw nine White Ibises 
strolling around my yard.

Good Thing #3:

It could easily have been a wreck,
but I was able to slowly exit the freeway
when I realized the back tire had blown out
and change my tire without incident last week.
