I am very slow with completing books as I adjusted to married life in the New England area. I thought it would be fun to track my reading progress each week. The Sunday Salon is an online reading group where all the participants set aside time to read every Sunday and blog about the experience. To learn more or to join, click on the picture above.
This morning, Partner and I participated in a fundraising walk to cure cancer. Before we left, I managed to finish Once Upon a Day by Lisa Tucker. I never would have picked up the book if I had not decided to try one meeting of the book club that is held at the local library. I will write my review soon, but overall I enjoyed the book.
I have realized that being able to take the train from our place into Boston gives me more reading time than I had before. I have also been reading a little bit before going to bed and/or before getting out of bed in the morning. I imagine that those routines will change once I get busier. For now, I am trying to savor the pages.
Since my last post for Sunday Salon, I review two books. The books were different from each other, but I enjoyed them very much. Eva Luna by Isabel Allende was a compelling story about a young girl growing up without her mother, but also a story about the history of a country. You can read my review here.
House and Home by Kathleen McCleary is about a woman whose in a difficult transition. In the midst of trying to cope with losing so many things, she has a strong attachment to her house. You can read my review here.
I also started reading Blind Assassin by Margaret Atwood earlier this week. I started it while on the train from Boston and I missed my stop. If the rest of the book continues to be this engaging, I am going to enjoy it very much! Although, I may have to work out a system where I pay attention to the train stops while I am reading :)
