Sunday Salon – July Wrap Up – Weekly Recap – Mail Call

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!

  1. Impressive list. I’ve started reading David Copperfield, I think it’s going to take me a while to get through – nearly 800 pages.

  2. You have read nearly 39,000 pages this year??? Add to that a week that makes me tired just reading about it! Seriously love your blog. And the new book you’ve accepted for your blog tour looks wonderful. Blessings for a blockbuster tour and a FAB week ahead. Cheers from Australia.

  3. You had a great month and a great week! I wish I could participate in the blog tour, but things kind of got crazy for me with my blog tour schedule. Maybe next time!

    Have a great week!

  4. Wow! Talk about reading! What a great selection of books too! Thanks for sharing. You inspire me to get going on my reading to catch up! 🙂
