Sunday Salon

Well January is well and truly marching on. The children are back at school and the days are passing quicker than I can imagine. I feel like I spend most of my time running from one event to another.
Yet I have not let this stop me reading everything I can get my hands on.
I have finished two books this week. If you click on the titles you will see my reviews.
I am still reading Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods', which is quite different from other books I have read, but I am really enjoying. At 600+ words, I may still be reading it next week! I have noticed how I don't read many books by men, so I aim to rectify that this year.
Also slowly ploughing through 'Swallows and Amazons' still. I refuse to give up on it!
I am not sure of what else I plan to read this week, but it will probably be the books I picked up from the library which you can see in my 'Library Loot'.
I picked up some great books yesterday in the charity shop, but I will show you them tomorrow.
I hope you have all had a great reading week. I look forward to reading your blogs.

  2. I was hoping that 2009 would move at a slower pace than 2008 but it's not happening! January is flying by.

    Glad your reading time has not been affected. I plan to plop down with my books as soon as I get dressed as I am still in my jammies!

  4. Oooh, I've wanted to read more books by Neil Gaiman for ages now, but I haven't had much luck in my library or on the book swap site I use. Hope you're enjoying it!

    I've never read Swallows and Amazons. Hadn't heard of it until I moved here. It seems a bit large for me to pick up though.
