2008: The Sunday Salon – Sunday #8

This week has been a much better week than the previous two.  Thanks to good timing, good connections, and probably a little grace of God, I have a new job that starts Wednesday. I’m going to be able to transfer to another community college.  It’s a different job (web development instead of instructional support), but I get to keep my same salary and my benefits and I don’t have any break in my service. Mileage-wise, it’s a little closer, but there’s more traffic so the time I spend on the road will probably be pretty much the same.  I think it’s going to take a little bit of effort to change the direction of my thinking, but I’ll get there.

To top that off, I read two quite good books this week, Matrimony by Joshua Henkin and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time by Mark Haddon. Right now I’m reading From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E.L. Kongisberg and I’m continuing to listen to Before I Wake by Dee Henderson.  I probably have two hours left in that.  I’m already halfway through From the Mixed-Up Files… so I’ll have that finished tomorrow.  Then I’ll start Every Which Way But Dead by Kim Harrison.  I went to the library on Friday and came home with a bunch of the children’s/juvenile books that I plan to read for the Daring Book Challenge, so I’m going to be working through those in the next few weeks.

I received some new books for *my* library this week:

27715240 13737747 15160691 2797806913831474    22290333

The first four came from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers Group.  The last two I’ll be reviewing for J.Kaye this fall.

And now, it’s time for more football and True Blood. 🙂  Happy reading!

    I loved “The Curious Incident…” Definitely one of my favorites that I’ve read yet this year!

    I enjoyed both of the books you read as well. I still get smiles on my face thinking of Mark Haddon or any of his novels. Sometimes I really need that good laugh.
