The Sunday Salon: February 15, 2009

I'm getting to this a bit late this week.  I've been feeling lazy today, recovering from a busier-than-usual Saturday.  We visited a small town about 25 miles away to check out their antique shops and used bookstores.  It wasn't a bad way to spend Saturday afternoon, although the shops themselves were just OK.  On the book front, I was disappointed in the lack of Virago Modern Classics, but I did find a copy of Richard Yates' Revolutionary Road for only $2.00.  No, I haven't seen the film -- and I don't want to, until I've read the book!  After our little road trip, we had an out-of-town guest for dinner and stayed up late catching up and remembering old times.  It was nice, but I was pretty tired this morning.  So it's been good to just relax at home and catch up on blogging, reading, and a little paperwork.

Reading-wise, this week was a good one.  i finished two books:  Iris Murdoch's A Severed Head (review), and Penelope Lively's Moon Tiger (review).  Both were quite enjoyable; earning 4-star ratings.  I've been on a reading jag with woman authors, so I'm going to mix it up and read Milan Kundera's The Unbearable Lightness of Being next.  This will also constitute a visit to Czechoslovakia as part of my Reading Across Borders journey -- my first visit to a new country in 2009!

Where has your reading taken you this week?
