Sunday Salon: Week in Review #3

Happy Sunday! Did you have a good week? Are you enjoying what you're reading? Have you read the ALA announcements yet? I wrote up a little post about the awards yesterday. I found some GREAT books this week! I also watched a few good movies--including an adaptation of Strong Poison and Murder at the Vicarage. (Also City of Ember.) I also found this book trailer for one of my favorite 2010 books:
