Sunday Salon, 12/22/19 (on Monday!)

Sunday Salon

One of the things that keeps me from being a particularly consistent blogger is that I get tired of myself. I wasn’t going to do a Sunday Salon, but this (Monday) morning I decided I wanted to organize what I have to read this week.

Reading

Finished:

  War for the Oaks
  • Alligator Candy: A Memoir by David Kushner
  • War for the Oaks by Emma Bull

Might say something about one or both of these in the near future.

Should finish this week:

Savage Appetites: Four True Stories of Women, Crime, and Obsession Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within
  • Savage Appetites: Four True Stories of Women, Crime, and Obsession by Rachel Monroe
  • Writing Down the Bones: Freeing the Writer Within by Natalie Goldberg

There’s a chance I will hit my Goodreads goal of 52 books! I’m at 49 at the moment. These two will bring me up to 51.

Next up:

The Old English Baron: A Gothic Story, with Edmond, Orphan of the Castle Take Off Your Pants! Outline Your Books for Faster, Better Writing Westmark
  • The Old English Baron: A Gothic Story, with Edmond, Orphan of the Castle by Clara Reeve – The Classics Club Spin number was 13, but this is coincidentally the top of my list when sorted chronologically.
  • Take Off Your Pants! Outline Your Books for Faster, Better Writing by Libbie Hawker
  • Westmark by Lloyd Alexander – I think this is going to be my new chapter-a-day morning-routine book.

Movies/Television

Caught The Aeronauts before my Prime subscription lapsed. I liked it well enough. It was a good Victorian era adventure which I’m probably going to want to watch again.

Music

A friend on Facebook linked to this “Seven Nation Army”/”Sweet Dreams (Are Made of These)” mashup by Pomplemoose and it is really excellent. Not familiar with the band, so something new to investigate.
