The Sunday Salon~ Happy New Year!!!!!

The Sunday

Happy New Year to everyone.. I hope everyone is getting settled in after the holiday hustle bustle. We aren't.. it's like a perpetual motion of insanity over here now that we now have the Wii and the Playstation and computers going.. with a toddler begging for attention. And then it's chaos at work, so I therefore lost myself in a book whenever possible!!

I completed a few Tesla related books and the reviews will each post this week and next. It was a refreshing change to learn about something and someone entirely new, Nikolas Tesla, as opposed to my constant dabbling in Tudor works. I loved the last book I read, The Invention of Everything Else that I think Tesla is my new hero, by the way.

I posted my Best Books of 2009, and I also posted a Blogiversary giveaway post. A double-book giveaway there, so check it out!

And the last newsletter I sent out had a Lute Player by Norah Lofts giveaway, and I am announcing right now that the winner is Priscilla! Thanks to everyone who entered, I appreciate your support of The Burton Review!!

See my new releases post here..

I have many books to read for January and Febuary, as 2010 begins with a bang for some awesome historical reads for me, such as The Stolen Crown by Susan Higginbotham, The Secret of the Glass by Donna Russo Morin and Notorious Royal Marriages: A Juicy Journey Through Nine Centuries of Dynasty, Destiny, and Desire by Leslie Carroll, all which I hope to read this month. The Historical Fiction Bloggers Round Table ladies are kicking off 2010 with a Leslie Carroll event, and you will find an interview with the author right here on January 7th. My fellow bloggers will have creative posts or reviews, and you can see the schedule here. See you in the blogosphere!

I hope you get to enjoy a good book this week!
