The SuperBowl Sunday Salon

Welcome to my first Sunday Salon on my new URL!  I can’t tell you how excited I am that you’re here with me.  Taking this live new site live has certainly been an adventure.  In many ways I wished that I had done this a year ago, but I wouldn’t have made the investment in […]

The Sunday Salon ~ I’m Back!

After a week of computer frustration, I am back! This afternoon I actually felt like picking my laptop back up and getting back to work again. I’ve missed you guys! While I’ve been away, I have been getting some things accomplished. I got rid of all my half.com books. I sold them all for $10 […]

The Sunday Salon ~ Savoring Reading

Happy Sunday, everyone!  I hope that this post finds you fat and happy after a relaxing Thanksgiving weekend.  Thanksgiving was fun this year because both girls had an understanding of what it is about and actually wanted to watch the parade with us Thursday morning.  This also promises to be a fun Christmas as well.  […]

The Sunday Salon ~ October Wrap Up, NaNoWriMo and Mining ARCs

Since I didn’t get a chance to reflect on October, I thought I would start there before discussing my first full week of November. October Wrap Up October was an exciting month for me. Not only did I try some new things on my blog, I also celebrated my 37th birthday, my daugthers’ 6th (Emma) […]

The Sunday Salon I Am Out of My Mind

I have completely lost my mind.  Was it not just last week that I could not keep up with my reviews?  So what do I go and do?  I decide to take the plunge and enter the National Novel Writing Month, which runs from November 1st through the 30th.  To win, you have to write […]

The Sunday Salon 09.21.08

It is such a gorgeous day today!  This is the first morning I woke up feeling chilly.  A few months from now I’ll no doubt be complaining about this, but it felt really, really good.  I’ll be wearing long pants and a long sleeve t-shirt today for sure.  And, since I’ve finally gotten my seasonal […]

The Sunday Salon 9.7.08 & 100th Review Contest

This has been a productive week in Literate Housewife Review land. I read three and a half books, hosted a book tour, got nominated for a BBAW award, and published two reviews, which brought me just one review away from my 100th review!  I remember back in January of 2007 that I never in my […]

The Sunday Salon

This week was by far less eventful than last week. For that I am very grateful. I was able to read two books: The Last Queen by C.W. Gortner and House and Home by Kathleen McCleary. I also posted my review of Pattern Recognition by William Gibson. I became absolutely entranced by Juana La Loca […]

The Sunday Salon

Well, the theme for this week was getting caught in someone else’s hell. First, Melmoth the Wanderer. I gave this book a good college try. I swear it. I read it as often as possible and found parts of it interesting. I got about 275 pages in and I just couldn’t take it any more. […]

The Sunday Salon

This is my first Sunday Salon post and I’m so excited to get started. Thanks very much to Jen from Devourer of Books and my other favorite bloggers for gently nudging me to get started. This week I was able to complete reading two books: Castaway Kid by R.B. Mitchell and Pattern Recognition by William […]
