The Sunday Salon: March in Review

This has been a most pitiful month here on SmallWorld Reads. I've posted only six entries and finished only four books. I'm not quite sure what's happened to me!

Books Reviewed
Tramp for the Lord
The Bookseller of Kabul
Paula

Finished but not yet reviewed: New Moon, second in the Twilight series. (I wasn't crazy about Twilight but my friend begged me to keep reading. I'm glad I did. More later.)

Favorite Book of the Month: Paula by Isabel Allende

Books to Movies: Gone with the Wind (I've been watching it since I was a little girl, and for the first time I watched it with my kids. Loved the book, love the movie, love that my kids loved it!) and Twilight (I really, really liked the movie. Bella was perfect.)

Currently Reading: Marjane Satrapi's Persepolis, which my son is reading for his English 1010 class.

Sunday Scribblings:
Dear Past Me, Dear Future Me
Aging

And most weeks I perused Semicolon's Saturday Review of Books, my favorite place to glean new titles.

I am quite sure that April will be a better reading month!

I think April will be a bit of a slower month for me, at least blogging wise.

I look forward to reading your thoughts on New Moon. Hubby and I watched the movie Friday night again and enjoyed it. It's one of those that I can see myself watching over and over again. It's not my favorite movie, but it is fun. This time around, now having read the entire series, it seemed different somehow. Knowing what would happen to the characters.

Have a great week!

Four books and six entries--sounds like a normal month for me. :P I hope you are liking Persepolis. I read it last summer and adored it. Interesting about your son reading it for a course!

Happy Sunday reading--and thanks for coming by earlier.

I have no idea why, but when spring arrives, my reading slows. The beautiful weather? Social life picks up? Not sure.

I am moving at a slow pace as well...I hope to read more in April. Happy Reading!
