TSS: Slowing Down?

The Sunday Salon.com

Welcome to The Sunday Salon, a place for readers and book lovers to come together to escape into our books for a bit.  Each Sunday, we set aside some time to read and to discuss that reading, our reading throughout the past week, and other events in our lives.  Please join in the discussion here and take some time to visit some of the over 500 bloggers who participate.

How did it get to be almost the middle of October already?!  This year seems to be flying by.  I've been off to a really slow start on the blog this month and I don't see it picking up any time soon.  Once we hit September my life seems to be pretty crazy until the end of the year.   Between birthdays, our wedding anniversary, and the holidays, I don't have a huge amount of time for reading.  This time of year means a lot of trips to Michigan to see family.  These trips are wonderful but exhausting.

The Christmas Chronicles: The Legend of Santa ClausI can't believe I haven't even reviewed a book yet this month.  According to my list on Goodreads, I've only finished two books so far.  Here is a mini-review for The Christmas Chronicles: The Legend of Santa Claus by Tim Slover: 

This was a cute story about how the legend of Santa Claus developed over time. The end gets a little preachy about the meaning of Christmas and how greed and commerce have taken over the season but it was a fun story overall. A short book, it can easily be read in a day or two.

The Christmas Chronicles is such a short book that I just don't have much to say about it.  The official release date is November 2, 2010.  I received this book from the First Reads program on Goodreads with the expectation that I would provide my honest review.

Look for my review of Annexed by Sharon Dogar coming tomorrow.

Since Sunday is now the day of football at our house and the Indianapolis Colts are playing right now, I should have some reading time this afternoon.  The plan is to start The Way of Shadows by Brent Weeks and alternate that with You Already Know How to Be Great by Alan Fine.

I hope you all have a great week!
