The Sunday Salon: 3rd January 2010

Welcome to the first Sunday Salon of the year! I’ll be going back to work tomorrow after 11 days holiday, so I really need to put some kind of schedule together so I can keep posting regularly. Next weekend I’ll be taking part in Bloggiesta so I’m hoping that will be the motivation I need to get organized!

I’m more than halfway through The White Queen by Philippa Gregory which means I’ll soon have finished my first book of 2010 and will be able to post my first review of the year. I am keeping track of all the books I read in 2010 elsewhere on this blog. This will also be my list for the 100+ Reading Challenge. I’ll be surprised if I do actually manage to read 100 books this year because I’m not the fastest reader in the world (it doesn’t help that I work full-time and that I usually read long books) but I’m not going to worry about it if I fail the challenge. It will just be interesting to see how many books I read, because I’ve never kept count before.

Reviewed in the last week:

The Christmas Mystery by Jostein Gaarder

Added to my wishlist:

I was reading a post at Historically Obsessed about a new Susan Higginbotham book called The Stolen Crown due to be published in March. It’s about the same subject as The White Queen – The Wars of the Roses – so it’s been added to my wishlist.

    Christina – this will only be the second Philippa Gregory book I’ve read (The Other Boleyn Girl was the first). I’m going to try to read some more of her books when I have time.

    Ash – good luck with reading 100 books!

  2. Ash says:

    I want to read 100 books this year as well but I also tend to read longer book. I’m throwing some YA in here early in the year so hopefully that’ll give me a good start.

    I own almost every book Gregory has written, but have only read The Other Boleyn Girl and The Virgin’s Lover so I’ll be interested in what you have to say about The White Queen.
