The Sunday Salon (or Monday Salon)

Goodness! Where have I been? I've been around but school and family have kept me busy. Reading too. I finished the Barnes and Noble First Look book, The Believers by Zoe Heller. And thank heavens too. I didn't like it. And now I must discuss it for the next 4 weeks in the book club forums. Maybe dissecting it will bring understanding. I've also been steadily working through Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell at two chapters a day as planned. I've found it to be the perfect pace for this book. I will have it completed by the end of the month. Yay!

I am now trying to decide what I should read next. I will be busy in Nov. with NaNoWriMo. Should I read something related to writing? Should I read a couple of ARCs to get them out of the way? Should I pick up something that I've been looking forward to for a while before all my reading time is taken up with writing? Hmmm. I hate making decisions. I really should read The 19th Wife as I am participating in a TLC Blog Tour in Nov. It has been on my TBR pile for a couple of months now. Okay, I've talked me into it. =)

I thought The 19th Wife was great - hope you like it, too.

I've heard it said that it's best not to read fiction whilst writing, but I always do anyway :)
What sort of novel do you have in mind for this year's NaNoWriMo?
