From what I can tell, I haven’t written a Sunday Salon post since June 21 — that’s absurd, right?
The biggest reason I’ve missed TSS is because of travel — July 3-5 I was at my cabin, July 10-12 I was in Minnesota for my birthday, and July 17-21 I was in Minnesota for two bachelorette parties, one bridal shower, and one wedding. Last weekend I was finally in Madison, but spent the whole weekend avoiding my computer. This weekend, I was at my cabin again. Next weekend I’m going back to Minnesota for another wedding.
If you’re counting — as I have been — I spent about 27 hours in my car traveling during July, plus another 6 already in August. That’s a lot.
Luckily, I had some great audio books to listen to while I was driving. Over the three weekends, I finished four different books — The Wordy Shipmates by Sarah Vowell, Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven by Susan Jane Gilman, Into Thin Air by Jon Krakauer, and Assassination Vacation by Sarah Vowell.
I’m considering a dedicated Audio Book Week on my blog so I can post all the reviews together. I might also solicit audio book reviews from other bloggers and do a couple of Bookworms Carnival-esque posts so it’s not just my reviews, and maybe some more general posts about audio books.
I haven’t thought about it much yet, but what do you guys think? Does Audio Book Week sound interesting to anyone?
