The Sunday Salon.com

 The Sunday Salon used to be a meme but was getting so huge it became unmanageable, so it is now a Facebook group that has become an informal week in review
gathering place for bloggers.

It is also a place to share our thoughts about things of a bookish nature.

So Happy Sunday Everyone!

Here’s a little recap of April!

complete the challenge with the exception of the X.

This one is waiting on my Kindle and it still free on Amazon.
Thank you for all suggestions for X and Z!

Comes out in June, so hopefully I will wrap this challenge up then.

I am plugging away at all the rest of my challenges too!

I have also been working hard to move the reviews from my old Blogger blog over here to my new home. Most will have 2011 dates but  with them here they can be found easily using the Search function.
