TSS: A Week In Review

September 22, 2013 The Sunday Salon 2

What a whirlwind of a week!  It’s a crazy busy time of year for me at work so I’m not getting a while lot of reading done lately.  I hope to make that up soon!

I have been able to listen to audiobooks, though, and squealed with delight when I received…you guessed it…Doctor Sleep earlier this week. I’ve been listening as often as I can.  First thoughts: it’s very different than The Shining. It definitely shows how much King has progressed and evolved as a writer over the past few decades.

In case you’ve missed what happened on the blog this week, here’s a brief recap:

I was quite active off the blog as well.  I was featured on Springpad’s blog with a post I did on 5 Tips for Hosting a Great Bookclub (Using Springpad).  Also, on SheKnows, I interviewed James Patterson on his new endeavors to get children to read.

Also, even though I’m not reading a lot, I’m working on quite a few projects behind the scenes.  First, I will be announcing the first title for the Mother/Son Book Club next week. There’s still time to sign up! I will have a contest to win the first book pick for all who sign up!

Finally, you may have heard me mention Murder, Monsters, & Mayhem, my annual celebration of all things spooktacular, a few times. I asked people to write about the first book that terrified them and those guest posts have started to come in! Also, many of you submitted titles in my “Scare Me” challenge so I need to get started on those.

Whew! Considering the blog looked pretty empty this week I’m certainly keeping busy!  How was your week?

    I cannot wait to start reading Doctor Sleep!!! I will be picking it up on Tuesday, but will probably wait to start reading it until closer to the kick-off of the read-along I’m hosting for it. It starts on Monday the 30th. I guess we will see if I can wait that long!

    I look forward to seeing what book is chosen for the Mother/Son Book Club!

    Now, I am off to check out your link for hosting book clubs!!
