Sunday Salon: What We Said, Wrote & Read

Hello all, can you say exhausted? Let me say I am very grateful to be employed and I am exhausted. The drama at home and work has worn me out. Please bear with me while I get acclimated at work and my family adjusts to the demands of high school and the daily drama fest called teendom.

On to our reading life: I finished A Map of Home. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Couldn't savor the ending though. My daughter is impatiently waiting for me to catch up with her in her reading of Liar by Justine Larbalestier. Let me echo Zetta, Liar is more than you heard and hoped for. Loving it. I also need to read Paper Towns and pass it on for a challenge. And I just learned today about the Women Unbound Challenge. As a community of women, I'm hoping many of you are going to join and represent what we're about here at Color Online.

If you didn't haven't a chance before, please show some love for Bernice L. McFadden, our showcased writer for Women Writers of Color Series. Bernice has a new book out in 2010 and this year marks the ten year anniversary for Sugar.

Wishing you continued success, Bernice and congratulations on the anniversary of Sugar.

Congratulations to our Mrs. O winners: Mary Ann,Mardel, Lisa hms and Birdie. Also announced our Del Rio Bay Series winner, Lorraine and let me now announce October's Color Online Quiz winner, Ari. Don't forget about Little Lov'n Monday at Black-Eyed Susan's. Find links, drop links, earn a chance to win a free book.

Don't forget tomorrow, I'll share our new crayons. NC is all about what's new on our shelves. Tell us what goodies you picked up.

What's going on in your world? What have you read lately?

Congrats to all winners! Lorraine you are going to love the Del Rio Bay series :)
I completely agree susan, Liar, is indescrible and so much better than all the reviews made it sound (and they did a great job of reviewing it too!).
