Happy Sunday, Saloners! It’s been a really, really long time since I posted in the Sunday Salon, which makes me feel like a bad Saloner. However, I’ve also been a bad blogger, so I think the one goes hand in hand with the other. But I made a pledge to myself that I was going to begin blogging again, even if it was just posting once a week. So here I am, and I’m hoping that as I start to get back into it, it will start to come naturally to me again.
It’s been a little bit of a slow reading week for me, because I’ve been trying to focus on completing the paralegal program I’m currently enrolled in. However, my boss sent me to court to file papers on several different occasions, so I was able to get a little bit of reading done while waiting for my turn with the clerks. So I’ve read a little bit of Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese. Dr. Verghese is going to be in Sacramento in a few weeks, and I am really excited to see him based on the buzz in the blogosphere. I’d hoped to have the book read by the time he speaks at Borders, but I’m not entirely certain I’m going to make it through. Between school and work, it just doesn’t seem to be going at the speed I wanted.
I’ve also been trying to listen to more audiobooks, as that’s something I can do while trying to wean myself off Facebook games (I curse my coworkers every day for getting me addicted to the blasted things). I’m currently listening to Little Bee by Chris Cleave. Ordinarily, I have a hard time with audiobooks if I haven’t read the novels previously, but I’m pretty interested in this one so far, even though I haven’t read it previously.
So what are you reading this weekend?
