The Sunday Salon

It's been a slow reading week for me but I managed to finally finished The Painted Veil by W.Somerset Maugham. It was different than the movie but it was still a worthy read. While in Ashland I had picked up a used copy of another Maugham book, Of Human Bondage. I plan to add it to the reading stack for next month.

In the meantime I have just picked out three sources of fresh reading material: One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, Cranford, and Writer to Writer.

I've been searching for One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest for about 3 months now ... but everywhere I go they say they've just sold their last copy. (Guess I'll have to order it online.)
But seeing that it is so hard to get ahold of makes me more excited to read it. Hope you enjoy it also :)

I really liked The Painted Veil. I can't necessarily say I enjoyed it because it's difficult to read. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I want to!
