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.


  1. It looks like you've had a great reading week. You are right about the days passing so quickly. It will be Spring before we know it. Have a great week!

  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!

  3. Happy reading, enjoy American Gods, i'll be reading that one soon.

  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.
