Sunday Salon: A Books Report

Happy Mother’s Day to all of the American moms! If your wish for the day is some quality time alone with a book and your preferred beverage, I hope your family gifts you with that.

The Sunday Salon

Since my March NaBloPoMo adventure ended, my posting frequency here has dropped to about three times a week, and I’ve gotten surprisingly comfortable with that. However, I’ve just realized it’s been about six weeks since I last did a Reading Status Report...and so, a Sunday Salon post is born!

Posts about bookish events:

New arrivals in TBR Purgatory: 
Note: my last Bookkeeping post went up while I was still on my Lenten book-buying ban, so you’ll see I’ve made up for some lost time!

Undone, by Melissa Coleman  (which I will try to read before I see Kim at BEA in three weeks! Also: just three weeks till BEA!)

For review consideration:
An Uncommon Education: A Novel, by Elizabeth Percer
I Never Promised You a Goodie Bag: A Memoir of a Life Through Events--the Ones You Plan and the Ones You Don't, by Jennifer Gilbert

This bookish bounty is partly responsible for my reduced blogging activity, although it will eventually give me plenty to blog about! What are you reading, or blogging about, today?
