What is the Sunday Salon? It’s a virtual meeting of people who like to read, and enjoy blogging about what they are reading. It’s also a place to update your friends about other things going on in your life.
I started a book by Christine Johnson called Legacy of Love, which takes place in Michigan shortly after WWI. The setting feels like the town where my mother grew up, in Lake Forest, Ill, along the North shore of Lake Michigan. The story also reminds me of old romantic movies I used to watch on TV from time-to-time, which I always enjoyed so much. I'll review it soon.
I completed a Novella by Linda Goodnight, called Yuletide Homecoming, which I plan to review on Tuesday, along with the novella by Lissa Manley called A Family's Christmas Wish.
If you like hot fudge sundaes, and you want to have a hot fudge sundae reading experience, Yuletide Homecoming is for you--it's so very warm and sweet.
Saturday evening, Mike and I saw Skyfall, the new 007 movie. It was long--about 2 1/2 hours--but it grabbed my attention and didn't once let it go. It was so good, I cannot imagine how they could ever top it.
It's the 50th anniversary of Bond movies, and Bond fans of my generation, including my husband and I, have seen them all. I was 12 years old when I went to see the very first one--Goldfinger, at a theater in Tacoma, Washington.
In Skyfall, when a garage door was opened to reveal an antique Austin Healey, the audience uttered a collective gasp, as this movie reached back in remembrance of earlier ones.
It was a good week for entertainment. As to my writing, there was none. Instead, I spent hours organizing files and reading information that I'll need to begin to act upon, soon. When I'm done reading and reorganizing, I'll have a clearer idea of what lies ahead, each task's priority, and a rough timeline for achievement. There is so much more to writing for publication than simply writing books. If only that were all there is to it.
How was your week, reading, writing, or otherwise?
