The Sunday Salon --I'm Back and Important Bookish News

It's true I was never really gone, but this week has been fantastic for reading. I feel like I'm finally finding my reading groove again! This week I managed to read Broken by Travis Thrasher, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, My Wife's Affair by Nancy Woodruff, and some of The Dead Tossed Waves by Carrie Ryan. Rediscovering a love for reading is the best thing ever!

The land of books and book blogging is very busy now as you know. I hope you are all planning to register for Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Please do not hesitate to ask us questions or give us some feedback on the process this year.

Also, another one of the projects I'm involved with, the Small Press Spotlight Tour is currently taking sign-ups for Graywolf Press. This is a great chance to help out some of the underrecognized presses by reviewing one of their books on your blog!

Links I Enjoyed
Nicole of Linus's Blanket posted the trailer for Never Let Me Go. She didn't like the book. I haven't read the book, but I think I've been spoiled on it already.

I enjoyed this review of one of my favorite books of the year I've read so far, Battle Royale.

Daniel Goldin of the Boswell Book Company tells us why Father's Day is a good time to start thinking about Lily King's Father of the Rain.

Lenore of Presenting Lenore was not as excited with her first romance read as she could have been, sadly.

Ari of Reading in Color wrote a very insightful and informative post explaining why she hasn't told her real life friends about her book blog.

Ana of Things Mean a Lot wrote a very insightful review of The Magician's Book, which is still on my TBR.

Little, Brown launched Mulholland Books a new crime imprint.

And finally, my favorite post of the week and one I'll be revisiting later this week or next, was on The Bumbles blog, On Books: Never Apologize for What You Read. Seriously, if you read one post out of these links make it this one....I feel it's the most important of all.

What did you come across this week in your blog reading? Was it a good reading week for you? Add any books to the TBR pile?
