Sunday Salon - August 7

Well, this is not a Sunday Salon post I thought I would be able to write. The "thing" we've been dealing with all spring and summer was supposed to take a major turn tomorrow, one that would completely have occupied my thoughts today. Strange as it may sound, it's a disappoint to find that we are not able to take that next step. We now find ourselves living in a kind of limbo. I continue to find it hard to find the time to get to my Google Reader much, other than to try to keep it in check and stop by a few blogs every day. I'm trying to read as many of them as I can, though!

Mini-me found this picture for me this week of a theater that has been turned into a library. How gorgeous is that? I have a hard enough time tearing myself away from the boring library in my suburb. What a great idea!

Not sure how I missed this one--Michael Ondaatje's latest, The Cat's Table: A Novel is being released this month. I'm a huge fan of Ondaatje's The English Patient and have In The Skin Of The Lion patiently awaiting me already after hearing wonderful things about it. What's new on your wish list this week?
I've got a review of John McWhorter's What Language Is coming up this week. The Omaha Bookworms are meeting next week to discuss native Nebraskan Willa Cather's O, Pioneers so I'll be finishing that up this week. Then I'm hoping to squeeze in something from my review shelf that doesn't have a "due" date before my next scheduled review. I've fallen hopelessly behind again! What are you reading this week?
