The Sunday Salon 12.20.09

Happy Sunday!

Last Sunday before Christmas! I am all done buying presents. Granted, I didn't have to buy for that many people, but I am done!

It was a good reading week for me. I finished two books. The first was The Awakening by Kate Chopin which I used for the Women Unbound Challenge. I also finished These Old Shades by Georgette Heyer. Absolutely loved it! Dove right in to Devil's Cub afterward.

I also started reading The Letters of Robert Browning and Elizabeth Barrett 1845-1846 vol I. I've only read three of the letters, but I can tell that this will be a wonderful experience reading through the correspondence. The letters cover the whole year leading up to their elopement! I am also thoroughly enjoying Flowers From the Storm by Laura Kinsale. Man, the romance genre sure does get a bad rap, doesn't it? This is a very gripping book!

Have a great holiday, everyone!

I read The Awakening for my Women's Lit class last spring, and I loved it. It's one of my favorites.
