The Sunday Salon [2.2.14]

I’m writing this on the fly from my phone, having forgotten to write anything earlier, so bear with me.

I finally finished – thank god – Dave Egger’s The Circle. I think you can tell how I felt about it from that sentence. I am cleansing my palate with some Maisie Dobbs (Elegy for Eddie) while I await Cress’s publication on Tuesday.

In print, I read nothing this week. I spent the last half of the week at a conference and/or socializing. And I don’t see the reading time increasing anytime soon. I am sitting for the Labor and Employment Law Board Certification in 6 weeks and I need to actually start studying, so I think my reading time might be spent reading about unions, overtime, and discrimination instead. Riveting stuff.

I’m a bit behind on my 8k training, but I’m doing alright. I think my schedule and health may actually allow me to run this week. What a winter this has been.

I hope you all have a lovely Sunday.

    Yeah I was running behind today as well. The problem I’ve had with running and walking (besides various injuries) has been this godawful weather. I think it rained for like five straight days. Good luck on your upcoming exam! When I was still working in the financial field, I felt like I was always studying and taking exams for something. But hey, you gotta do it and it helps the career.

      The weather hasn’t helped things, but my weekday runs are often at the gym anyway.

    I am impressed when people blog on their phones… haha. I am glad I am not the only one who doesn’t ‘get’ David Eggers. I have tried a couple and just been kind of ‘meh’ about him.

      I hate blogging from my phone. But it was either that or nothing.

    So you didn’t like The Circle? I have that on my list. It’s the type of weird book I typically like but I have a love/hate relationship with the author.
