The Sunday Salon

Battening down the hatches, here in NH, for another snow storm. But, I'm on winter vacation this week so the weather can do whatever it wants!

It was a crazy and busy week at school so I didn't get as much reading done as I'd hoped. I'm about 3/4 of the way through two books:

Ordinary Genius is a beautifully-written book about how to write poetry. I'm taking my time with it so I can savor the ideas.

Mistress Shakespeare is full of historical references but not so much that it takes away from the romance between Will and Anne Whateley. I'm really enjoying this visit to old England!

Anyway, I hope to get lots of reading in this week, after the shoveling, of course!

You have a good week, too!

Do like the sound of those two books.

At least the snow won't bother your reading this week. Enjoy your week off.

I hope you enjoy your week off! I know what you mean about not minding bad weather when you are on vacation. I hope you get lots of reading in.

We're supposedly in for a snow storm here too but it sure doesn't look like it right now. I'm hoping it passes over us. Mistress Shakespeare sounds really good. I've been seeing it around a lot. I'm working on one called The Kingmaking-500+ pages---quite good though.
