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.

Hi Everyone,
It has been a busy couple of weeks. I updated by blog theme and finally finished adding all my books read to the Literary Escapes (Books by State) through 2016. I do plan a few more updates to those pages as time allows and trying to stay current adding books as I read them.

As for my 2016 Reading Challenges I finished 12 out of 14. I was unable to complete the Crafty Cozy Challenge even though I 159 cozies. I also only traveled to 43 States and 8 places Abroad for my Literary Escapes. You can see all the links to my challenge books here.

I also celebrated by 7 year Blogoversary with 5 days of giveaways.

Offline we celebrated with extended family on Christmas Day and our immediate family just yesterday. Kaden and Natalie stayed overnight and will be leaving soon to go home.

Full Version of Sunday Salon will return next week!

2016 was quite a year. The word lost several icons this year, author, musicians, actors, political figures, and more. For me it was a year of healing and that will continue throughout this year. I look forward to meeting you here everyday to share our love of books and bookish things. My resolution for the year is to become more organized. You may not see it much here on the blog but my bookshelves are overflowing along with my file cabinets, closets and dresser drawers. It will be a year long project for sure. 

What is your New Year’s Resolution???

BLOGOVERSARY CELEBRATION – DAY 3
BIG BOX OF BOOKS

It was on this day in 2009 I posted my first blog post. I really had no idea what I was doing or whether anyone would be interested in what I had to say. My friend, Lori, at Lori’s Reading Corner was an enormous help then and still is today. There is no way to thank her for everything she has done for me over the years. I am so blessed to have her in my life. It’s crazy too, we have never met in person, we are online friends that just click. In fact, because we are both named Lori and like similar books and have many of the same contacts some think we are actually the same person or confuse us with each other. Believe me seen side by side you can definitely tell the difference 😀 

Are you ready for another giveaway?

One person is going to receive A BIG BOX OF BOOKS!

They are all Mass Market Paperbacks.
Just click on the covers for book info.

TOP NON-COZY READS OF 2016

Looking back at the books I read in 2016 I was surprised that almost all the books I read were cozy mystery. I only read about 1 or 2 non-cozy books a month. These are the 3 that I enjoyed so much they received my Paradise Rating.

The first one should be no surprise because Harlen Coben is one of my all time favorite authors.

I look forward to books from this author each year and she always writes a story I can escape right into.

goodreads-badge-add-plusMy Review Here

Is it just a coincidence the last 2 books have a beach theme? I know I want to escape to a warm beach several times throughout the year. 

They do match my blog nicely and give a double meaning to paradise. 

I am looking forward to books by all 3 authors in 2017. The nice thing is they are all books that can be read on their own.
