Sunday Salon: Year of the Snake

Sunday Salon

Hello everyone! Today is the first day of Chinese New Year so Happy New Year!

This week my reviews for Fifty Shames of Earl Grey, The Giving Tree, and January Monthly Movies were posted.

This week, I read The Best American Travel Writing 2012, Paris in Love by Eloisa James this week and I am currently reading Game of Thrones by George R. R. Martin. I am enjoying the latter just for the suspense and the pacing though there are a lot of characters, and I know I shouldn’t attach onto them too much.

I’ve been doing well in reading nonfiction books this year, but not so much in TBR challenge. It’s always harder to read books on my shelves since I have two piles of library books at any time. For the library goers, do you ever have to balance between these kind of stacks?

I’m off for a winter hike after that big snowstorm on Friday. I am not sporty especially in the winter, but I do like walks.

Have a good week, everyone!

    I am cold about my TBR these days. I am cold about library books; I just don’t read them all. So why shouldn’t I be just as cold about my TBR? If it has been sitting on my shelves for months, years in some cases, why should I feel guilty every time I pass by? No, I banish that book like a wayward child. Off with his head!

      Hey Deb! Why so cold? I also have books sitting on my shelves for years! Yes, I only feel the small tinge of guilt. My library books get urgency and attention, but my shelves do not. This is why I am not buying anymore fiction until I make some dent into the TBR shelves. Good Luck to you and your books!

    I’m glad to hear your enjoying A Game of Thrones, I received the full set (to-date) of A Song of Ice and Fire for Christmas and I am really looking forward to starting it 😀

      Hi Jessica! I’m almost done! I think I’ll finish it today, but it is very long and I was bit impatient with things in the middle of the novel. I’m not sure I’ll start the second book for awhile. I have them all on Kindle too so I can put it off for awhile. Thanks and happy reading!
