Sunday Salon: Labor Day Weekend


I hope everyone is having a great holiday weekend! What are you currently reading?

Not only do we get an extra day off work, but this weekend also kicked off the start of college football season. It's the most wonderful time of the year...

Don't forget that this is the last day to place your vote for the Book Blogger Appreciation Week Blog Awards. Details here.

Also, this past week, I posted another "Waiting On" Wednesday preview (here) and a review of Off Season by Anne Rivers Siddons (here).

With Hurricane Gustav looming in the Gulf, it's a little strange that I'm starting City of Refuge by Tom Piazza today, given its premise:


"From the award-winning novelist and author of "Why New Orleans Matters" comes a breathtaking novel of two families, one white and one black, whose lives are torn apart by Hurricane Katrina, and then pieced back together again in ways they couldn't have imagined."
(Books-A-Million)

Readers of this blog will know how strongly I feel about New Orleans, and memories of watching the Katrina aftermath are rushing through my head. Prayers abound for these residents...
