The Sunday Salon: Some Books Forgotten
I'm getting this week's Sunday Salon in under the wire tonight because my day has been spent with the usual weekend errands (library and the grocery store) as well as being preoccupied with some other kinds of books.
You see, I was always a fairly avid reader but nothing like until book blogging entered my life. In the years before that took hold, my main hobby was scrapbooking.
I still scrapbook every so often, but it has definitely fallen by the wayside. There was a time when I religiously sat down at my dining room table and created 10 pages every Friday night. When we moved into this apartment and The Husband saw Rubbermaid container after container of photos and paraphenalia coming in the door, I knew I had to try and get some control over this. Anyway, so I've been spending part of the day digital scrapbooking in hopes of completing our family's Christmas album from this past year - and to take advantage of a pretty cool Creative Memories sale. (I used to be a Consultant, so I'm still very much a loyalist to them.)
So, I did 5 scrapbook pages tonight. Not as many as I'd hoped to, but that's 5 more than I had when I woke up this morning.
I liked the first 8 pages. After that, this became a long tangent that become really tough to understand and get into. I happen to own this (yay! another one off Mount TBR!) and I'll be donating this to the library - or somewhere - at my earliest opportunity. I feel kind of bad inflicting this on someone else, but ... well, maybe it will find a happy home.
This one is due back to the library with no renewals (of course) on Tuesday, so I need to spend some time with this tomorrow. (I'm only on page 142 of 363.) I'm thinking about pairing this with Myla Goldberg's Bee Season for the Truth in Fiction reading challenge.
Hope you had a great Sunday!
