Sunday Salon - 19 June 2011 - an update

Was it only 10 days ago that we returned from our overseas trip? Feels like ages!

It has taken a while to get back into harness, catching up on emails, and typing up book reviews that I drafted on paper. And of course, life has changed too. I've retired and regular work has been replaced by lots of other things, like providing child care for our grand daughter.

I've read some great books recently. My pick of the month for May was THE WRECKAGE by Australian author Michael Robotham. 

Currently I've read 75 books for the year. I've already completed a number of challenges and you can read about my progress on my Reading Challenges Update

I always feel like I need a vacation to catch up after a vacation.
