Sunday Salon

Happy weekend everyone! I hope it’s been a relaxing one for you. I thought I’d do a bit of catching up with another Sunday Salon post. Thank you to Deb at Readerbuzz for hosting the chat.

What I’m watching: We started Stay Close which is based on a Harlan Coben novel. It’s ok. There are two characters that totally annoy me but luckily they’re not on screen much. Honestly, would probably give up on this one but now that we are halfway through I want to know what the mystery is!

What I’m reading: I’ve started reading The Nakano Thrift Shop by Hiromi Kawakami; translated by Allison Markin Powell. This book is reminding me that it’s been ages since I’ve been thrifting and I’d love to go explore some local shops. So far a good read.

What I’m listening to: I love all types of music but lately to relax and focus I’ve been starting my mornings and ending my evenings with some classical music. I cannot tell you how many times I’ve replayed this Mozart piece (Piano Concerto #20, in D Minor). One of my favorites.

What I’m dreaming about: Through a bookbinding Facebook group I read about a bookbinder in Germany who is selling her studio and I thought, can you imagine? The space looks beautiful and it’s close to Berlin. I could host bookbinding and art journaling classes and my husband could teach calligraphy. Well one can dream, right?

What is my quote for the week: “Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality.” ~ Susan Sontag

Wishing you a great week ahead and lots of good books!
