Sunday Salon: 27 March 2010: SS a way of life


Sunday Salon has become a way of life for me,an opportunity to summarise my week.
But I'm not really sure that many of my fellow Sunday Saloners actually visit. Certainly, from what I can see from my RSS feeds coming in, few of them are actually crime fiction readers.
So if you are a fellow Sunday Saloner, do leave a comment and let me know where to find your post this week.

The best book I've read and reviewed this week was CROOKED LETTER, CROOKED LETTER by Tom Franklin.
    The book explores relationships in a small Mississippi town where segregation and accompanying class differences had once been entrenched. We glimpse too how life has changed over a period of about thirty years. That makes it a story of a nation too, and makes this novel much more than crime fiction. An excellent read. One of those books that will stay in your mind long after you've read it.

Kerrie - You have some good reads coming up :-). I am eager to see what you think of the trope and of course what you think of And Then There Were None

I'm reading your blog a few times a day, and have put Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter on library reserve. Can't wait to read it.

And because you pointed out the "Blogs I'm Watching" link at the top of the website, I'm now checking those links every day.

I wish my Sundays would only be devoted to reading crime fiction, but the New York Times is ominous, and I have deadlines for tasks. Oh, if only I could read for 12 hours straight with no interruptions...that would be bliss--interrupted by a few website/blog checks during the day.

Happy Sunday Salon!

Always enjoy your reviews. Looking forward to your take on COLD JUSTICE. I finished LOVE YOUR MORE by Lisa Gardner and OPAL FIRE by Barbra Annino this week. Have a great Sunday.

I hope that you don't mind that I stop in almost every week, though I don't read much crime fiction. I love to see what you've read.

Here's my Sunday Salon post for this week. I hope you will stop by, even if you don't read much other than crime fiction. Sometimes it's nice to just talk books.
