Happy Sunday Saloners! Here we are again, so quickly. Since becoming 'retired' the days seem to go by even quicker than BR (Before Retirement). Lately, I haven't been too steady with my TSS posts, so it's nice to be back on schedule!
My plan, today, is to spend a leisurely day finishing my current read, THE PRUDENT MARINER. I'm actually off to a good start - I've been up for awhile, I have a big cup of my favorite Colombian coffee, some breakfast nibbles and my book. I'm ready to settle in and get lost in 1970's Georgia, where my protagonist's family lives on the bluffs of the Intercoastal Waterway. It's a time when things are changing, but living in the South means change comes slower than most places. Anyway . . . I should finish today and have my review posted later this week.
I discovered a few new online book/blogger sites this week that are pretty cool. BookBlips is a book news and social networking site. I've already 'met' several new book lovers/bloggers and I've only been a member for 3 days! Thanks to J.Kaye for introducing me to this cool place. I see a lot of you are already signed up. It's taken a few days to get the hang of it, but overall, I like it. As with anything - the more you use it, the better you get at it.
Another cool site is Readiac. I saw this mentioned on a couple different blogs this week but I haven't spent much time there yet. It looks like a great book community where you can meet and discuss anything book-ish! I plan to spend some time on the site this week to familiarize myself with it.
For now, I'm going to go read for awhile and come back later and catch up on some blogs. I hope you're having an enjoyable day with a great book, too!
