The Sunday Salon is 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.
You can also link up weekly on Readerbuzz.

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.
HAPPY SUNDAY EVERYONE!
Last week was a big week around here even though there were no tours. Great Escapes Book Tours took its holiday break so we could all concentrate on our families and rejuvenate a bit. Of course, we still had to post on our blogs and for me, that meant my BLOGOVERSARY! I did a little blog maintenance too and added all my 2019 Reads to the State Pages listed under the Literary Escapes Tab. I also completed all of my Reading Challenges for 2019.
Last Sunday we gathered at Daughter #1’s home to celebrate our family Christmas. As we were loading the van it was clear Santa, Nana, and Papa went a little overboard. When everyone arrived and the presents were unloaded by all, it looked like Santa’s Sleigh had exploded. But everyone had fun and was very happy with their gifts. I mean, this only happens once a year, right, so we tend to spoil those we love. The kids also spoiled us. Mr. Dollycas received a treasure, a Packer Helmet signed by Jerry Kramer, Amand Green, Gilbert Brown, and Santana Dotson along with a picture with the retired players holding our youngest grandchildren. To say he was floored is an understatement. I received some wonderful presents too.
On December 31 I celebrated my 11th Blogoversary. The giveaways actually started the day before. I was thrilled to have Kensington Books join me again in the celebration. They provided books for three days of giveaways. I cleared a couple of shelves of books here too for the other 3 days of giveaways. You can still enter! The giveaways each ran a week and will be ending soon so don’t miss out. Just click the links below in the Weekly Rewind.
