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.

SUNDAY POSTThe Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by
Kimba @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer
~ It’s a chance to share news~
A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

Welcome to 2014!!
And the Coldest January in Decades!!
Schools decided on Friday to close tomorrow due to the frigid temps. The grocery store where my youngest daughter works will be closing early and several businesses will not even open their doors tomorrow. People are told to stay home and stay warm. 

I will be right here at my computer or snuggled up reading a cozy mystery.

My daughter and grandson are ready for the weather.

2013 CHALLENGE WRAP UP!
I did it, by the skin of my teeth, I reached by goal of Reading 200 Books!

Earlier in the year I completed the Read-A-Latte Challenge, the E-Book Challenge, the Crusin’ Thru The Cozies Challenge, the Finish The Series Challenge, the What An Animal Challenge, the Mystery/Crime Reading Challenge, My Wisconsin Challenge and the First in A Series Challenge.

In December I completed the A-Z Challenge, the Off The Shelf Challenge, the What’s In A Name Challenge, and the Just For Fun Challenge.

This means I completed 13 out of 17 Challenges.
I did pretty well in the Where Are You Reading Challenge – 38 out of 51 States and 10 Countries. Fell 6 titles short on the A-Z Cozy Challenge, but was unable to even read 1 book in the Woman’s Murder Club Challenge or the Outdo Yourself Challenge.

I am cutting back just a little on Challenges this year. I may add a Mystery/Thriller Challenge but that is it.  Be sure to check out my Alphabet Soup Challenge and my Just For Fun Challenge.

Happy Reading!! Stay Warm!!!

  2. I met my Goodreads goal, too, and went a little past it. But this year, I’ve set the goal at 150. I’m playing with the idea that lessening the pressure will relax me more…lol
