Sunday Salon: Hello July

sunday salon books

With June gone and July beginning in earnest I’m feeling the pressure of my Goodreads challenge weighing down upon me. I’m fifteen books behind schedule and I’m not sure I’m going to be able to pull out of this nosedive before the end of the year. I guess next year I’ll have to plan for job stress and family things.

I only managed to make it through four books last month and I’m hoping that I’ll do better in July. I’m working on Ben Winters’ Underground Airlines which is a thoughtful speculative fiction title due out on Tuesday. I’m also listening to Cronin’s The City of Mirrors which is the final book in The Passage trilogy.

In meteorological news, it’s so hot. I grew up in the south and have been back in Georgia for about three years now, but I never get over how damn hot it gets. We just got back from the pool. I hate the sun. I hate being tan. I hate burning more than all that. DESPITE all that I’m thinking that this summer I should take up swimming – because it’s aerobic and it keeps me cooler than running does in the 98+ degree heat. Still thinking the thoughts, trying to make a decision.

My best good friend (who also happens to be my trial assistant) came to the pool today with her boyfriend. I think that we’re about to embark on an evening of board games, booze, and fun. She has a DC Comics Deck Building Game that I suspect will be an excellent time as well as a Japanese board game that I haven’t played yet, but I am looking forward to.

Anyway. That’s my weekend thus far, Readers. What about you? Read anything worth reading? Done anything worth doing?

Sunday Salon: Night Post

Time // 8:38 PM EDT

Feeling // Injured. I tore the shit out of something in my knee last night. Probably something to do with three inch heels at The Girl’s ‘Winter Ball’. It was a fundraiser for the school — the new school, not the beastly place she was in. (Yep, gonna keep on linking that until half the world has seen it…) I also seem to be brewing a headache.

Planning // BEA is coming up. Deciding what to do about that. I should be able to spare three days in May, depending on whether or not it falls during a trial calendar.

Reading // Bats of the Republic. Guys, it’s not only a compelling story told in a new way, it’s a beautiful looking book. I love the way Tournament of Books introduces me to books that I wouldn’t have otherwise have picked up.

Watching // Broadchurch, finished the first season and the first few episodes of the second season. I love how it’s revealing the differences between the British and American justice systems. Makes me think I should read more about it. The Children Act was good for that, but I’d like to learn more.

Okay, enough for now, Readers. How was your week?
