The Sunday Salon: Memorial Weekend

I started off my Sunday by going to church. When you have a former Marine as your pastor, you can bet the Memorial Day weekend service is going to special. And it was! Afterwards, I came home and read some. I'm almost finished with THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN. This is a unique book, narrated by a dog, with a compelling story. Its different than any other book I've read.

Yesterday I found out I've been chosen by The Library Thing Early Reviewers to review a book for them. Since I've only recently joined LT, I didn't know I'd be chosen so quickly. What a pleasant surprise! The book is THE RICHEST SEASON written by Maryann McFadden. I feel like I lucked out since this is an excellent selection for me. The story is about two women who both end up in the low country of South Carolina and they each are at a place in their lives where change is coming. I believe this is Ms. McFaddens debut novel and it has a release date of late June. I've read several books with the low country locale and I've enjoy them all.

I'm planning to spend the rest of my Sunday lounging around, reading and spending time with my honey. I hope all you Saloners are having a great day and are enjoying the holiday weekend! Oh, and for you, Dad - Semper Fi


  1. I am receiving The Richest Season too. I look forward to comparing notes. :)

    Happy reading!

  2. Living among the military community here in Okinawa definately opens your eyes to the meaning of Memorial Day. I have many friends who have deployed to both hot spots, Iraq and Afganistan, and fortunately returned. An few of my uncles (whom I never met) died in WWII and growing up in the D.C. area was always a great expereince when it came to patriotic holidays.

    I'm a new member if Library Things early reviewer program but didn't get lucky this time around. Hopefully next month!!


Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I look forward to hearing from you again soon!
