2009: The Sunday Salon – I’m hooooooome

Hey, look at that.  I’m back, and blogging.  What a novel idea!

I’ll probably post up some vacation pictures for you all at some point.  We had a really good time, but I came home exhausted.  We went to 5 national parks in 5 days, and by day 6 I was ready for some rest and relaxation.  We hit Mesa Verde, Arches, Canyonlands, Grand Tetons, and Yellowstone.  I think Arches was the prettiest, but Yellowstone was the most exciting.

Reading-wise, I am still *way* behind in my reviews.  Here’s what’s coming up!

  • The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson (later today)
  • Practical Demonkeeping by Christopher Moore
  • Cleopatra’s Daughter by Michelle Moran
  • Wish You Were Here by Rita Mae Brown
  • Silence of the Grave by Arnalder Indridason
  • Hunter’s Moon by C.T. Adams & Cathy Clamp
  • The Spire by Richard North Patterson
  • Full Bloom by Janet Evanovich
  • The Fury by Jason Pinter
  • Coyote Blue by Christopher Moore
  • Vixen 03 by Clive Cussler

The good news is that I have most of these reviews written, I just need to get the posts put together.  In addition, I have three or four new challenges I’m joining that I need to post about.

The thing I’m hemming and hawing about most these days is the upcoming Read-a-Thon. I’ve never participated in one before, and I’m seriously considering it this time around. There’s no Hokies game that Saturday, and it looks like we’re probably going to my in-laws the *next* weekend, so I’ve got a good opportunity. Have you done the Read-a-thon before?  What are your thoughts?

    Your trip sounds fabulous, but we’re glad you’re back! I’ve never done a read-a-thon, but I’m not sure it’s for me.

    Interesting that you hit the two national parks in Utah that we skipped and we visited the two you missed.

    Yellowstone is my favorite ever. Plans are in the works for a summer 2010 trip back. I would love to see your photos.

    I really enjoyed the Read-a-thon last I participated! I think that even if you don’t actually want to spend the whole 24 hours reading, it’s still a great community event and well worth joining in.
