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!

Have you ever gotten your blog set up just perfectly and then something stops working?

That happened to me a couple of weeks ago. I found out my wonderful Beach Holiday theme was no longer covered by technical support from the creator and the last few times WordPress updated things with my theme stopped working.

This week with a lot of help from a very patient wonderful person I upgraded my theme. I tried to keep basically the same background and relaxing feel. All the features are working and while I still have much to learn.

It just means we have to keep learning new things everyday.  For me than means learning more of the technical working of blogs and reading wonderful books every day. I hope you will leave a comment and let me know what you think of my new theme. Any tips or hints are always welcome too!

Besides working on the technical stuff I had a good content week as well.

Monday meant my normal memes. It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? and Mondays Music Moves Me!

Tuesday I reviewed Ocean Beach by Wendy Wax. It comes out this Tuesday and is a perfect escape beach read!

Cozy Wednesday brought one of my favorite cozy authors Julie Hyzy by for a visit. She talks about her love affair with Marshall Fields.

Thursday I hosted the Virtual Blog Stop for All He Saw Was The Girl by Peter Leonard. I do enjoy this author’s writing style.

Friday I reviewed Nose for Trouble by Doranna Durgin. This was a fantastic cozy. It was originally released in 2005 and it has been updated and was re-released this past April.

Saturday I reviewed Quilt or Innocence by Elizabeth Craig. I will admit I didn’t like some of these characters at first but the story pulled me through and I can’t wait to read the next installment.

This was also a big week for special events. I am taking part in the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon. I am not doing as well as I had hoped as my time keeps being diverted away from reading, but I hope to finish strong today.

I am also involved in two Giveaway Hops. The Midsummer’s Eve Giveaway Hop runs through Tuesday and The Literary Blog Hop goes through Wednesday.

There are also 4 more giveaways listed on my Current Giveaways Page.


These are both for review later this summer.


This looks like my kind of place!

I hope you have a fantastic Sunday and an awesome week!

Happy Reading!

  1. I have been having a beef with leaving comments on Blogger lately: they keep saying my HTML is not accepted, even though I’ve been using the same codes FOREVER! (I keep a cheat sheet, so that’s how I know). But the slightest little thing sets them off. So I have to play with, tweak, etc., until they finally let it go through.

    Word verification is another thing, but don’t get me started!

    I’m glad to get to a blog that’s not on Blogger just so I can relax.

    Your new look is still very relaxing…enjoy!

    Here’s MY SUNDAY SALON POST

  2. Wow! What a busy week for you! Just have to tell you that I’ve received The Wedding Shawl by Sally Goldenbaum and am reading it now. Thanks again ~ I’m really enjoying it! And, boy, do I want a book shelf like the picture above on our beach!

  3. I love that bookshelf! Happy reading!
