~The Sunday Salon~



Wow, it's been a LONG time since I have posted anything on the Sunday Salon. I go through spells where I don't blog as often as I would like to (like right now). It's not that I am too busy, I just have other things that I'm involved in, such as an Ebay infatuation phase that I am going through right now. Hopefully it will burn itself out soon!

I will be finished reading Die For You by Lisa Unger today. It's been a great read...I've really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to starting her new book Fragile! Last week I finished Jan's Story by Barry Petersen. I should have a review for that posted some time later this week. Also, I am reading the last few pages of Belly of the Whale by Linda Merlino....a review for it will be posted soon.

My book situation here at home is really getting out of control. My bookshelves are full, and I have stacks of books on my desk, dresser, and night table. I need some organization! What I really need is another bookshelf, but there is no room in the house for it. Unfortunately, I am having to let some books go without reading them. I am currently going through my shelves and familiarizing myself with what I have, reading the back covers to see if I am still interested, and making my "sacrifice" stacks. If anyone else is in the process of doing this and wants to swap some books with me, I will post my Sacrifice Stack on my blog. If you see something you are interested in, and would like to swap, let me know!

I hope that everyone enjoys their Sunday....rest, relax and READ.

XOXO

Oh oh oh! I love your new Blog look! Very very pretty! I have to re-do mine, maybe when I get back from Vacation.

I have an out of control book situation, too. Even though I've cut way, way back on the number of books I've taken for review, somehow they are still coming in faster than I can read them. I could make room for another bookshelf--but I think you have the right idea--better to thin out what's not going to get read. Or maybe I could just stop doing laundry and cleaning and read more!

I recently did that my TBR shelves. I listed a ton of books on PaperBackSwap. Most of them left my house too thankfully. I feel very overwhelmed looking at all of these unread books and its not that I don't want to read them. So many books so little time. I am scared I am going to miss a great read. lol :)

Good idea on the Sacrifice Stack! I should probably go through my shelves (and all of the overflow piles) as well....

Love the new header and look Missy! I'm with you on the piles of books with no where to go. Hope you manage to get organized!
