The Sunday Salon

Another holiday weekend comes to an end. This has been a rather subdued one here. We’re not big on crowds and fireworks (the ones the neighbors started setting off from their arsenal at 9:22 a.m. and again 12 hours later were more than sufficient for us).

I expected to do a considerable amount of reading this weekend, but that didn’t happen. Instead, I got a much-needed haircut, caught up on some blog reading, and finally finished House of Cards (as of Friday, I still had 5 or 6 episodes left of Season 3).

Dear ThiefI did start two books, but both are going back to the library unfinished.Part of my (hopefully temporary) book inertia is because of just finishing an amazing novel, Dear Thief by Samantha Harvey. I wrote a little about this in last week’s Salon and I’m hoping to get to a longer review later. This novel is written as a letter to a former friend, and it is such a tremendous example of stellar character-building. It’s a very cerebral kind of novel, one that makes you think about the dynamics between spouses, children, and friends.

That’s about all for now … hope those of you in the States had a good 4th of July weekend!

Thanks for sharing this post!

    While I don’t know what you are going through… I feel the angst in your voice and I hear the glimmer of hope.

    I have been there. Life is cyclical and I know you will come through this trial, whatever it may be.

    Dear Thief sounds like a fabulous book and I will add it to my TBR list. Thank you for the recommendation.
