This is my very fist time doing the Sunday Salon, and I am excited about what it is....I just hope I am doing it right. I was wondering what time people usually do it at, or does it not matter?
Well, for me this is a fun thing. I spent all night last night trying to get really far in my reading of Anna Karenina, only to realize that I only read 90 pages. Yeah, that actually is not that bad...but it is no where near the end yet. Okay, it is nearer now. I have only 190 pages left and I can't wait to finish it. I want to know if all my time invested in this book will come to a good conclusion or if the 820 pages will be tarnished by a not-so great ending.
For the first 300 pages I really didn't like the book very much, after that I have started enjoying it, and now my biggest fear is that in the end it will turn out horrible for someone who I have become attached to in time spent with them (or reading about them..however you prefer). I know that sad endings are some times, and many times a reality...I get that, but I want these people to end up okay (at least some of them!).
Another reason I can't wait to fisnish "Anna" is that I just went to our city's HUGE Library book sale and bought tons of good, no AMAZING books for so cheap I am afriad to tell you, or you may riot. Okay, I will: Hardbacks $3.00, all Paperbacks $2.00! Yes. very good. I have also been raiding our local goodwill and second hand stores to find great books. I have found some for under a dollar. I always feel I have come across something amazing when I get a good book for really cheap...it is a secret treasure. Maybe I am a nerd...but I am such a nerd, that that is fine with me. Everyone is a nerd about something, and hopefully it is something that they really love. For me I have several things that are that way: Jesus, my husband, my two little boys, books, rock climbing, and cats (on different days the list would change a tad, well...more would just be added, none taken off).
When I finish this book I will read Cat's Eye by Margaret Atwood!! Have you read it?
I am off to see what you all have written about...thanks for letting me be a part of this fun community!!!
