Sunday Salon...

Sunday Salon finds me disappointed in my reading totals for November. The Paying Guests, Sarah Waters, too long, interesting but sort of a let down at the end.  Kindred , Octavia Butler was the only other book I completed. And only today did I finish I kill a Mockingbird, an enjoyable story. I'm 42 on the wait list for All the Light We Cannot See.  So I guess I'll be hitting the TBR pile in my room.  I believe it will be Norwegian by Night, that would complete my War Through the Generations challenge.

This week, only a couple of outings, and then onward toward Christmas preparations.
Not sure how many challenges I'll participate in next year, I like them, just don't always get them finished, but I find they push me to read books I would not normally pick.  Happy reading.

Vicki I think you make like I kill a Mockingbird, it's short and sweet and really quite innocent.  I rarely read authors notes at the end, BUT... being as some day soon I may be mentioned in one (hint, hint, S. Vincent) I thought I'd read it, and it was an expected notation (cancer is involved).

Glad you liked I Kill The Mockingbird. Sorry you have to wait so long for All The Light We Cannot See, hope it is your turn soon! Have a great week.

I'm really glad I didn't do any challenges this year - and that I'm almost done with my review commitments. I have been adding stuff to my library wish list and look forward to the New Year, in which I read whatever I want whenever I want!

I wish I got as much reading done as you, dear Irene. All the Christmas projects have me reading little else but online present-buying sites. But I did ask for a book for Christmas! It's on my list. xoxo
