Sunday Salon: The Week In Short

Brief flashes of my week: Killer exercise class. Field trip chaperone. Fitness trainer. Writing reviews. Restless reading. Tennis. Sunny Savannah. College trip with my daughter. Visiting my parents. Heading home hours in the car.

My reading travels this week took me to upstate New York with a female soldier who returned from Iraq invisibly broken. I also ruminated on having babies and how that changes life. I am still at the medical clinic with a father hoping to have his son "resurrected." I am also still entrenched in upper class Britain between the wars with a family modeled after the Mitfords. And I am in the 1930s bouncing between two sisters, one a nudist and one a divorced mom, who have a terribly betrayal between them but who are about to reconnect after many years. Where did your reading travels take you this past week?


  1. So a good week it sounds like, except for that trip to upstate New York. ;)

    Me? I've only been to L.A. this week where a private eye was looking for a son for a mother and father. This week, I'll be back in L.A. with him during some riots in the 1960s. I'm not sure where else I'll go yet.

  2. Sounds like you had a very busy week. I've been busily reading nonfiction and it's too much...time for some fiction, I think.

  3. Busy Busy Busy!

    Sounds like you've been reading some interesting books.

  4. Sunny Savannah sounds good to me. Last week I was in a hospital in Chechnya with an 8 year old trying to survive the war. Enjoy your reading.

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
