Sunday Salon

I usually don’t do Sunday Salon but since my husband is working this Sunday I have nothing to do. Blogging seemed like a great idea although I avoid blogging on weekends.

I had a hectic week as I have been setting up the house. I have also been busy exploring the new surroundings which is always fun. The first thing I looked for is obviously the library but I kind of don’t like this one. It’s very crowded and it also doesn’t keep audio-books. So I think I will be going to my previous library which is just 15 minutes bus ride away.

I just finished reading Chokher Bali by Rabindranath Tagore and I quite liked it. I am thinking of watching the movie and then reviewing both together. I also bought a few YA books from the library but I could not get into those although they seem like good books. So I returned them and bought Dragon House by John Shors which is set in Vietnam and Breathing in Color by Clare Jay which is set in India. AS I recently discovered audio-books I have also borrowed Broken For You by Stephanie Kallos and The King of Torts by John Grisham for my husband. He thinks audio-books are great while jogging, I might try it sometime this week too. I did not finish Nemesis by Agatha Christie but more on that later.

Oh and challenges. I joined only one this year (I think)- South Asian Authors Challenge and I’m sure I have completed it. Again, I will compile the list for this year as well as the ones to read next year (oh yes, I’m joining for next year too). I don’t think I will join any other challenges though. I might join RIP. I didn’t participate this year because my husband was traveling at that time and I didn’t want to read horror when I was all alone in the house.

I think I have rambled on for too long. I’m off to read The Patron Saint of Butterflies by Cecilia Gallant. Before ending the post can I shamelessly ask you to Sign my Guest-book? (thank you to those who already have).  It will take only a minute and I kind of like going through all the guest signatures. It’s always fun. Okay, I’ll stop now. How is your weekend progressing?
