The Sunday Salon #60: Finding My Way Back to Books & Orbis Terrarum Mini-Challenge

The Sunday Salon.com

Even though I am very slow with completing books,  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.

´╗┐Writing a Sunday Salon post feels wonderful. I have missed participating over the last few months. Preparing for the bar exam was a time consuming and stressful event. Fortunately, the exam finished almost two weeks ago.  Partner and I went to Atlanta to celebrate which was very fun! I got back into reading with two very different selections.

Home Town by Tracy Kidder reads like a very long episode of Praire Home Companion without the funny commercials and variety of voices.  I really enjoyed Kidder's book Mountains Beyond Mountains, so I had high hopes for the selection. I am almost half way through the book and hope it improves.

I Love You and I am Leaving Anyway by Tracy McMillian is a memoir of how one woman comes to terms with her past in order to have better relationships in the future.  At first I was not sure how I would like the book, but I am really drawn into McMillian's story and enjoying her voice.  I got the book as part of a TLC book tour which I will participate in later on this week.

In other reading news, I am hosting an Orbis Terrarum Mini-Challenge. It is a contest that combines food and books.  The first post for the mini-challenge can be found here
