The Sunday Salon: Laziness

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....

Lazy: This week I have been somewhat lazy. I have only done one review and that was for an audiobook. I haven't really been reading Sons and Lovers, and am only one page 100 (out of 400). I did start Dawn by Octavia Butler and that held my interest for about a day. I don't know what is wrong with me. Nothing is truly catching my interest. I had a goal to read 60 books this year but I don't think that I will make it. Since I am only on book 24. Blah.

Blog Improvements: I have finally added something to the about me sidebar thingy. It has been empty since I started this blog. Now I need a new avatar. The one that I am using now is kind of lame. I also have added a review policy. I don't know if anyone is going to contact me to review books, but I thought that it would be a good idea to have one anyways. I sort of stole pieces of it from other places on the web. I will change it if needed.

First Giveaway: Is official over. It was fun to do. Hopefully, I will be able to have more in the future.


  1. I've heard a lot of people say they're reading has slowed this summer. I wonder if it's a heat related thing.

  2. You may want to try making yourself an avatar at or at Yahoo. Those are the ones I use the most.
