The Sunday Salon



I finally have  a day to read, blog and just plain be lazy! Since I've gone back to the office, I haven't had the energy to blog or do anything on the computer. But we've been bike riding, trying to lose weight and I'm finally  getting used to the schedule. My son has also been making friends and is adjusting to our new home. The weather has been wonderful too! Not hot not cold but the fall chill is in the air.

Since we've moved I have read so many great books. The last one I finished, The Help by Kathryn Stockett  was an awesome read. Sad but the ending was so good. I am looking forward to seeing the movie!

THE HELP By Stockett, Kathryn (Author) Paperback on 05-Apr-2011
THE HELP: Movie Trailer. Watch more top selected videos about: THE HELP, Sissy Spacek


I've finished :

Fallen by Karin Slaughter

The Lake by Banana Yoshimoto

I hope to be able to post more often during the week and also visit some of my favorite blogs.

Hope you have a wonderful Sunday!

Natalie, I'd love to see The Help, and/or read the novel.

I hope you're enjoying Dreams of Joy by Lisa See. I'd like to read that book also.

Hi Natalie! Some of my female relatives are planning on seeing the movie as we all read the book and loved it.

I have never read anything by Lisa See, but have had the Snow Flower and the Secret Fan for years.

Good for you for getting on a bike! We have so many damn hills around here, riding a bike just is not pleasant. But yesterday I started running again for the first time in 4 years. YIKES!

Cheers!
Lisa

Hi Natalie;
It does seem that you've been busy. I hope you saw some nice seights when you were biking.

The Help is high on Mt Tbr and I will be adding the recent Lisa See to my wishlist as I have enjoyed her earlier books. Good to hear you are settling in to your new home.

My wife and a group of her friends had a night out and saw the movie a few weeks ago and all enjoyed it.
