Sunday Salon - January 30

It's been a slow reading week for me.  My parents were with us one night and my son was in town another; I had the idea that perhaps it would be rude for me to ignore them and read while they were here!  This weekend has been busy: Friday was The Big Guy's birthday, Saturday Miss H and I had to head out of town for a baby shower and today The Big Guy and I headed back out of town to go usher at the Community Playhouse with my parents.  Yesterday Mini-him was here again and so we had an impromptu family movie night and all watched "Inception."  Then Miss H and I watched "Eat, Pray, Love."

I did finally finish The Center Cannot Hold by Elyn Saks.  It's the story of living with schizophrenia and to say that it scared the wits out of me would be an understatement.  It's actually been one of my "mom fears" that one of my children would develop schizophrenia but it was really my boys that I was the most worried about.  Now I've got to worry about my daughter, too!

I've got absolutely no books I "have" to read for review for February.  I'm hoping to use the month to read books for challenges and the goals I've set for the year.  I'm putting together the stack of books I want to read for March, a month I've designated as Mystery March.  I've managed to talk The Big Guy into reading one or two mysteries with me as well.  Hmm, it's just occurred to me that my parents both enjoy mysteries/thrillers so I'll bet I can talk them into reading and reviewing a couple of books as well.  Right, Mom and Dad?
