The Sunday Salon: Under the Wire

So, a little late today. I goofed off pretty much all day and, yes, I enjoyed it. I slept late, read the paper, had a nice brunch, did a little shopping, took a nap (I need to fit more of these in!), and read a book. It was a good day all around.

I had a decent reading week too. I finished two books by Bernard Cornwell, Vagabond and Heretic, and with these books finished up the Grail series. I enjoyed the last two books in the series much more than the first and hope to have reviews up later this week. I read The Taker and the Keeper by Wim Coleman and Pat Perrin today. It’s a young adult book and a fairly entertaining, fast read. I hope to get in a few pages of Powers by John B. Olson tonight too.

While making my way through the paper today, I came across the book section. My paper got rid of the section earlier this year and just includes reviews as part of the style section now so if felt like a real treat. It was a best of 2009 list. I found a lot of books to add to my list and a few I didn’t agree with at all but you can’t make everyone happy. 🙂 It also got me thinking about what I’ve read this year and what I liked and didn’t. I believe this will be turning into a post later in the week.

Now that we’re approaching the end of the year, I always find myself putting together lists — books I liked, didn’t, and what I plan to read next year. How about you? Are you a list maker too? Please don’t tell me I’m the only one out there…

  1. I have to admit that I have trouble with lists! I love looking at other peoples’, but putting mine together is just so difficult for me. I haven’t decided if I will do a best of 2009 list or not.

    Glad you enjoyed the Grail series; it was my introduction to Bernard Cornwell and I actually find that I like most of his other books better, but I still enjoyed those.
