The Sunday Salon: 27th December 2009

I hope you all had a great Christmas and are looking forward to 2010! I managed to get more reading done than I expected this week and posted two reviews. The first was a review of an old favourite, A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. This counted towards the Christmas Reading Challenge. One Christmas book is enough to meet the requirements of the challenge, but I’m hoping to read another one this week before the challenge ends on Thursday. The second book I reviewed was A Warrior’s Life: A Biography of Paulo Coelho by Fernando Morais. I received a copy from LibraryThing Early Reviewers and would probably not have thought about reading it otherwise, but I still found it quite interesting.

I was thinking this morning about how the most memorable characters in books are often the villains, rather than the heroes and heroines! I’m considering a weekly feature in which I would profile a different literary villain every week, but I’m not sure if anyone is already doing this? If you know of any features like this, please comment and let me know so I can make sure mine is not exactly the same.

I’m also going to be looking ahead to 2010 this week. It will be my first full year of book blogging and my first full year of reading challenges, so I’ll have to plan what books I need to read in January for challenges etc.

Well, have a great week – and enjoy your New Year celebrations!

    I think a focus on villains would be awesome! I find that sometimes in books I like the villains more than the heroines because they seem more human to me.
