Sunday Salon: A Short Post to Start a Short Month



The Sunday Salon


I'm later to the Salon than I like to be, and I won't be staying long today. We have plans for this lovely Sunday. Last year we spent it with the antiquities at the Getty Villa; today we'll be going to the Getty Museum (cameras in hand, of course) for more art and views of the city. We don't plan to be back before the game starts, so we have the DVR set to record it--we wouldn't miss the Puppy Bowl!

I'm not sure much reading will happen today, but I do have a review for the freelance gig to write before we leave. February is short of days, but it has a pretty full agenda--stealing this idea from Care, here's my itinerary:

two blog tours

NOT LESS THAN EVERYTHING, edited by Catherine Wolff (TLC Book Tour)NEWS FROM HEAVEN, Jennifer Haigh (TLC Book Tour)

three book clubs (although one started on January 31, two are online, and one's already met)

HERE I GO AGAIN, Jen Lancaster (BlogHer Book Club)THE PARTICULAR SADNESS OF LEMON CAKE, Aimee Bender (MomsLAReads Book Club)A GOOD AMERICAN, Alex George (BlogHer Book Club)


an audiobook in progress (I should finish it around midweek)

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, Lionel Shriver

and two March releases to read and review for Shelf Awareness...after I finish the slightly-late February review I have to get to them today, I'll decide which books they'll be.

This is also the busiest time of year for me at my Real Job, so while the reading schedule is busy, blogging may fall by the wayside a bit during the next few weeks--so if I'm scarce, now you know why. My "things I want to blog about" folders are full, but time to do anything with those ideas is definitely limited right now, and I've already had to "mark all as read" in Google Reader once this month. Odds are it'll happen again.

See you when I see you, and have a great Sunday!
