Sunday Salon #35 - 7 December

Good morning Fellow Sunday Saloners.

Are you ready for Christmas? - Only 17 days to go!
My list of to do's is huge - the cards, the presents, the lunch..
No, I'm not ready!

My posts this week:
A reminder:
I am participating in a Blog Advent Tour. My posting comes up on December 10. Have a look at the posts so far.

My favourite authors:
The poll this week was How many books are you currently reading?
12 participants - thank you!
1 - 6
2 - 2
3 - 4
I'm one of the 3 books at a time people, but then I counted the "actual book", Alexander McCall Smith's online book CORDUROY MANSIONS, and the book I'm listening to in the car.

The poll for the coming week: What is your favourite fiction style?
There are 11 choices, but you can only choose one.
I have used a wikipedia genre list.
Pop over and participate.

Currently reading
  • now - SKINNY DIP, Carl Hiassen
  • sometime soon - THE 19TH WIFE, David Ebershoff
  • also listening to - CORDUROY MANSIONS, Alexander McCall Smith, ready for ch. 61
  • in the car - BLINDSIDE, J.R. Carroll
Do pop in and rate this post if you have found it useful or interesting. And leave a comment! I always reply.

I chose romance in the poll because I seem to be on a romance binge right now, but I don't have a single favorite genre. I will read almost any genre if it is combined with humor.

Hello Dani

Can you check the poll again? I don't think your vote "registered"

I'm reading SKINNY DIP by Carl Hiassen at present. Very quirky somewhat macabre sense of humour but you might enjoy it.

Yvonne said...

I chose mystery, but I also love romances. I just seem to be on a mystery kick lately.

Kerrie said...

I need to rediscover some other genres Yvonne. I read far too narrowly.

Lin said...

I love to read at last three genres in the poll.But the poll allows us to vote only one.So I voted detective.

I am almost all done with my Christmas shopping. I still want to pick up a few things for my husband and I have to shop for my work Secret Santa. I just got the cards done today, what few I decided to do. The only thing missing are the decorations and I still haven't decided if I want to bother with them this year.

I love your polls, Kerrie. I don't always leave a comment, but I do visit your blog regularly. You provide me with my mystery fix. :-)

No reading lately for me. And I am yet to get gifts for mt nephews and nieces for christmas. Not in a mood you know.

Kerrie said...

I'm glad you enjoy the polls. I like seeing what people choose. The polls don't always show what I think they are going to. People can be very unpredictable.

Literary Feline there is a chance that people who smugly announce they are nearly finished may be banned from commenting! :-)

Lin - I knew someone would complain they couldn't vote for more than one

Gautami- I hope the holidays give you some time and tranquillity for some reading.
