The Sunday Salon: Holiday Reading

Look at that lovely stack of books! I am planning on lots and lots of luxurious reading time during the next few weeks, until our activities start again in January. I was incredibly lucky at the library yesterday, finding 9 books on my TBR list actually available!

Carved in Bone by Jefferson Bass (our January book club book)
What Looks Like Crazy on an Ordinary Day by Pearl Cleage
Dreams of Joy by Lisa See
At Atlas of Impossible Longing by Anuradha Roy
The Only True Genius in the Family by Jennie Nash
The Ninth Wife by Amy Stolls
The Midwife's Confession by Diane Chamberlain
The Tiger's Wife by Tea Obreht
The Bride's House by Sandra Dallas

So far this year I've read 40 books (yikes--that is really low for me!), and 21 of them have been from my TBR list. And I've added something like 45 books to my list. I usually manage to get several books read during the holidays, but 9 will be challenging!

I started with the Sandra Dallas book. What's on your holiday reading list?

Is there anything quite as alluring as a tall stack of beautiful books?

Looks like you have a good time ahead of you with all of those books. I hope that their plots are just as enjoyable as their covers are lovely!

Oh, your stack looks enticing! I loved The Midwife's Confession...and now I want to know more about your other books. Enjoy!

My holiday reading stack is huge. I have three weeks until the new semester starts and I'm trying to cram in as much reading as I can. The Pearl Clege book is amazing. I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading.

I love a good pile of library books. I hope you get through a good chunk of them anyway. Happy reading!

I enjoyed The Ninth Wife and I'm jealous of you having Dreams of Joy available, I'm still on the reservation list for that one!

Happy reading :)
