The Sunday Salon: Touching Base September 13, 2009

Happy Sunday, Everyone!

I'm touching base because I've been a bit incommunicado the last few weeks. I've had some exceptional family obligations which have consumed most of my time and also been battling a case of serious head and chest congestion. Basically, I'm pretty run down right now. I've tried to keep up with moderating comments, but haven't been able to visit other blogs and leave comments. I'm hoping to catch up with all of you this week.

I must apologize profusely to Ru Freeman and TLC Book Tours -- I missed not one, but TWO scheduled dates for the blog tour of A DISOBEDIENT GIRL. The first date I simply overlooked because my time was so overbooked. The second date I missed because I unexpectedly continued to be overwhelmed and then sick on top of it all. However, let it be known that A DISOBEDIENT GIRL is an incredibly good read, one of the best books I've read this year, and I will post my review this week.

I've done some reading this week but not too much. I'm continuing to read and enjoy VELVA JEAN LEARNS TO DRIVE by Jennifer Niven. I picked up a copy of OLD YELLER by Fred Gipson from the library. This was a favorite movie of mine as a child, and it was fun to revisit the story. And I sped through PIPER REED, NAVY BRAT by Kimberly Willis Holt for the Middle Grade Reading Challenge. It was cute and fun, and my sister and I will be reading it in the evenings to my 6-year-old niece over the next little while.














I don't know yet what I'll settle into reading this week. I continue to have far more choices than time. If I can just get the doctor to prescribe bed rest . . .

Sorry to hear you've been unwell!

I'll be keeping an eye out for your review of A Disobedient Girl. From the cover and the title it looks like it could be a serious and upsetting read.

I hope you are feeling better soon and that you get the rest you need. Don't worry about getting behind right now, it happens to all of us sooner or later. Get well!
