Sunday Salon: Toothless Edition


Time // 5:30 p.m. Sunday evening. I played harp at church this morning, then came home for a nice, long nap.

Happenings // C lost her first tooth! It was a bottom front tooth, and the one next to it is going to fall out any day now, too. I, on the other hand, ended up having to get a tooth extracted. Not fun. I did get to experience the wonders of Valium, and I’m glad to have relief from the pain. Hopefully I can play my wind instruments again later this week, because orchestra rehearsals for 42nd Street begin next Sunday.

Reading // I finished The Shore by Sara Taylor; 320 pages and I could have continued to read on and on and on. Also read Dietland by Sarai Walker, which was an entertaining and kind of crazy (in a good way). Now I’m reading debut YA novel The Last Leaves Falling by Sarah Benwell. I promise this “variations on the name Sarah” thing wasn’t planned in any way!

Blogging // I really need to catch up on reviews. I have plenty to say about the books I’ve read; I just haven’t had a chance to sit down and write it out. Armchair BEA just finished up, and I chimed in on the daily topics over at The Socratic Salon. We have five great books up for grabs, so check out our giveaway (runs through Thursday).

Hope you all have a wonderful week!

    I would love to have some harp in our church service! I just play the regular old keyboard….

    I’ve heard great things about The Shore. I might have to cave and add it to the good old TBR list.

  • That is funny about the variations on Sarah in author names! I find my reading falling into patterns rather often, without my intending it to.

  • Hope you feel better soon! My poor dog has to have a tooth surgery this week, and we’re hoping for just a sealant, versus extraction! And I laughed about the Sara/Sarah/Sarai thing 😉

    The pressure to review? I keep seeing it among so many book bloggers. Don’t pressure yourself and if you don’t review every book, what’s the worst that’s going to happen? You know what that is. Nothing. I’d rather see your thoughts on books in one post than a ton of reviews slap-dashed together because you feel like you “need to” write the reviews. You don’t. My (not-so-humble) opinion. 🙂

    • No, no, no pressure at all. I WANT to write them, but other things that aren’t as fun have been getting in the way. 🙂
