It’s late and I should be in bed, but I wanted to write a quick Sunday Salon. For the past couple weeks I have been reading Anathem, by Neal Stephenson, which is almost 1000 pages long. Parts of it grabbed me, but I haven’t been that captivated by it overall. However, I am leaving town for a week tomorrow and wanted to finish it before I left, as it is way too heavy to take with me. So I have been reading a lot this weekend and now have only a few pages left. I’ll write a review later but my reaction is pretty lukewarm at best.
For my trip (which involves three plane flights), I got People of the Book, by Geraldine Brooks. I have heard good things about so I hope it lives up to my expectations! In case I finish it before the trip is over, I am also bringing Memoirs of a Geisha, by Arthur Golden. I have seen the movie and look forward to the book. And in case I get bored of reading I have a crochet project 🙂
When I was at the library getting books for the trip I also got Girl Sleuth: Nancy Drew and the Women Who Created Her, by Melanie Rehak. I loved Nancy Drew when I was young and this book looks like it should be fun and informative! I look forward to reading it when I get back (it’s a little heavy to bring with, and two books should be more than sufficient).
That’s all for tonight. I hope you had a good Sunday!
