The Sunday Salon: Various Sundrys on a Monday

by Rachel Baker on October 20, 2008

Sunday SalonHello, Friends.  Last week was a pretty busy week for Old Musty Books – lots of reading, lots of articles posted. So, I took the weekend off, and figured I could just pretend this morning was an extension of Sunday.  I say I took the weekend off, but really, I just didn’t write.  I read…all weekend, from morning to night, during meals, by the pool – finished two books, and read two others. I was putting off this post until Sunday evening, and the day just slipped away on me.  When a day slips away because you’ve spent it reading, its been a great day, don’t you think?

So, what books did I read over the weekend?  Let me start by saying, The Story of Edgar Sawtelle by David Wroblewski, so far, has been excellent! If you haven’t picked it up yet, I suggest you do.  I’ll be reviewing it when I’m done, but I figured I’d weigh in now.I finished Book of Lies by Brad Meltzer and Into the Woods by R.R. Smythe.  I’m hoping to have the reviews up this week.  I liked Book of Lies…mostly. There were some parts I was a little annoyed by, but the ending made it all better.  Into the Woods by R.R. Smythe was interesting.  Its a novella really, and I was hoping for more than I got.

I picked up By George: A Novel by Wesley Stace on Friday night. I love this one!  And I’m not going to give you anything more until the review.  Its truly a wonderful read!

Here’s some recaps from the previous week:

I posted a Spooktacular Giveaway contest last week.  You have today and tomorrow to participate still.

The schedules have been posted for the Miami Book Fair International.  There’s some really fantastic opportunities to spend time listening to many different authors reading.

I had an opportunity to preview The Book: New Testament.  This was a moving experience.

I’ve still been working on the multi-part review of the Twilight Saga by Stephanie Meyer.  In case you missed part one and two of the Twilight Saga, here they are:  Part One and  Part Two  Up next with Part Three will be about conflict, should be posted today or tomorrow.  Also, I’ve started reading Stephanie Meyer’s The Host.
