Sunday wrap up.

So, dear Readers, what did you do this week? I participated in my first Readathon and though it was to run from Monday to Sunday, I have to admit I only read Tuesday through Friday. My reviews of the books can be found here:http://theviewfromsarisworld.blogspot.com/2010/07/friday-reviewathon.html
It really amazed me how fast a week can go by when one is busy reading. Before I knew it I had finished four books in four days. I have not done that in a long time. The last time did this was back when I got suckered into reading the Twilight series. This was after a surgery and when I needed to get my mind off my situation. Thankfully this time around I picked some real winners.  Having read two Karen Essex’ book I can now say she is one of my favorite historical fiction authors.
Yesterday my mother and I headed out to Reno with the hopes of finding good deals on cloths. I did not set out to buy shoes, but oh how I love shoes! I found this pair at T J Max. This was my first and possibly last purchase at this chain; I was not real thrilled with their clothing selection. 
Next we headed to Steinmart, which sadly I always assumed was a big store dedicated to steins and other glassware.  I am not sure if this is a chain, I would compare this to Macy’s yet it is much smaller. Not only was Steinmart having a sale, they gave us an extra 33% off.  I think this sweater was originally $68.00 but I ended up paying only $13.00. This was my deal of the day. It will quickly become a favorite when sweater seasons starts again. 
Last night my luck continued as I received an e-mail from On Demand Studios informing me that I qualify for several of their freelance writer jobs. I am thrilled as extra money is always welcome. I had to laugh because one of the sites they will pay me to write for is E-How. I already write for them, but do earn enough to call myself a paid writer. With on Demand I will finally make enough to be able to say with a straight face, I am a professional writer.
I started God is not ONE by Stephen Prothero last night and am enjoying it. The book is a great introduction to the eight major religions yet in-depth enough to hold my interest.

So that was my week. Not sure what is coming up this week. I am hoping to continue reading book after book; school is starting soon so I will not have time for pleasure reading for quite a while

  1. Kel, thanks. They are fun, I have been wanting shoes like this for some time but could not find a pair that quite fit. These feel good and were on sale; score for me!
