The Sunday Salon – It’s My Birthday – Bookmarks – June Recap – Looking Ahead To July

The Sunday

 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!

I love that my birthday is at this time in the year.
The Fireworks, The Carnivals, The Parades
All to help me celebrate my birthday
oh and cough, the birth of this great nation!


I really love my new blog theme. So much so I ordered some bookmarks to match it.
If you win a book from me you will also receive one of this cool bookmarks!

These pictures don’t do them justice.
If you are in the market for business cards or bookmarks
I highly recommend Conquest Graphics.
