Sunday Salon: Reading, Read, To Read #48

Happy Sunday everyone! November is almost gone whether it feels like it or not. I read some great books this week. Nation wowed me almost from the start. I can't believe I put off reading it so long. I hope to have a review up tomorrow. It was my last book needed for completing Dewey's challenge. The Year of The Bomb really surprised me. This is a book that I'd never have picked up on my own--the cover just didn't say read me, read me. But I just loved that one. I've also been reading two chunksters this week: The Way We Live Now by Anthony Trollope (just lacking about seventy pages) and Man and Wife by Wilkie Collins. Trollope is just too much fun!!! I am loving him!

Black Angels. Linda Beatrice Brown. 2009. Penguin. 260 pages.
Bystander. James Preller. 2009. Feiwel and Friends. 226 pages.

Oh, it sounds like you've had a really good week. :) I'm looking forward to your "Nation"-review - so glad you liked it, and that you are enjoying your Trollope, too. "Searching for Pemberley" not very good? L.
