Sunday Salon - October 5

The Sunday Salon.com
Later today we will be going apple picking with a group of our friends, one of my favorite autumn activities! However, reading is high on my mind today, since I decided to take the leap and tackle The Cairo Trilogy...all 3 books. They have been staring at me for two years, and I figure it is about time that I took the plunge. 

I'm hoping to do a little blog hopping during Maya's afternoon nap. And stay tuned for an onslaught of picture books reviews, I'm hoping to post my thoughts on many of the books we checked out from the library that have a fall theme. I'm still catching up on my own reviews, too...I hope to have my thoughts up soon on Hotel du Lac by Anita Brookner, Remember Me and Shopahoilc and Baby by Sophie Kinsella, and Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

It sounds like you have a wonderful day planned! Reading and apple picking. It's been so long since I last went apple picking. Have a great week!

I loooove Mahfouz, but I've only read the first in the Cairo trilogy-my library didn't have the other ones at the time, and then I got distracted. But he's definitely one of those authors who I want to rad everything they wrote!

Hey there --

I see you're a fellow Sophie Kinsella fan (which is how I found your blog). If you have a moment, would you check out mine at www.sarahpekkanen.com
I'm a new novelist, with a book coming out in a little over a year, and I'm trying to get some feedback from fellow book lovers. If you sign up for my mailing list on my homepage, I'm giving away books and chocolates every month, and I'll send you the first chapter as soon as it's through the editing process.
Thanks!

I haven't been apple picking since I was a kid. Not alot of apple trees around the Tulsa Oklahoma area. Hope you had a really nice time.

I have the Cairo trilogy on my shelves as well. Lately it has been eying me more and more ferociously. I guess it wants to be read. I am thinking about reading this one a bit later this year, when the weather gets dark and cold again.
