  1. I hope, lady, that you're getting out sometime during this weekend. Sheesh. :P (Said by the guy sitting on the couh, reading Sunday Salon posts, and not planning on moving much from this room as he'll be reading here later and doing some decluttering and organizing of the bookcase.)

    1. Yup, for a little bit anyway. I'm heading out to do a bit of flea-marketing! Good luck with the decluttering!

  5. I think the book about Wilson could be very good, I am looking forward to your thoughts on it. Les Mis is going very well, I am very impressed (takes hat off and bows, chapeau!)

    Kind regards,

  7. I know you don't make a practice of reading more than book at a time, but this may be a case where you should throw in a lighter read as a break from Les Mis. Then go back to it fresh.

    1. I had thought of doing that but I think I've hit the sweet spot ;) I'm over half way through, yahoo! If I hit a tough spot I might take a break though.

  9. Not an entry, but a great idea for getting rid of books. I however got tired of some issues I encountered with my personal giveaways, so I stopped them.
    oh well. Happy shelf cleaning.

  10. Hippie Boy sounds really good!! I will have to come by for your review. Mormon themed books like that really intrigue me.

    And keep on trucking with Les Mis!

  13. Wonderful progress with Les Mis! I don't know if I could do it - 1463 pages?! I already think 800 pages is a lot.

    1. I'm plugging along nicely. It's a good read, thank goodness!!

  16. Les Miserables has its ups and downs, indeed. Specially when the author began to talk about the map of Paris, for example... and after 50 pages you just want to continue with the story, which seems to be nowhere!!
    I agree with Ciska about the cat :)))

    I am failing at this Les Mis thing. I finally have it out of the boxes I had packed, but I haven't even managed to start it yet :/
