I missed catching up with Sunday Salon last week because I was away on holidays.
I took a heap of books with me and managed to read 8 of them. That set me quite a challenge because I write and post reviews of everything I read.
So this week has been catching up on emails, reading blog posts where I can, writing reviews, bringing my database up to date, and then posting the reviews.
I feel like I have been working hard.
If you haven't "met" me before: I am addicted to crime fiction, so if you are too, you might like to check some of my reviews out.
I seem to have read a few Canadian authors in the last week or so: Peter Robinson, Louise Penny, Vicki Delaney.
If you are looking for some recommendations check out Smik's Reviews where I list all the titles I have reviewed since I started this blog at the beginning of 2008. If you have reviewed any of the same books, leave a comment with a link to your review so people who find my blog posting can check your review out too.
A selection of my reviews for the last 3 or 4 years are also posted on Reviewer's Choice.
