Sunday Salon

For over a month I’ve been taking part in The Sunday Salon hosted by Deb Nance at Readerbuzz. So far it’s been a huge success and I’m striving to make it a regular feature. So here’s another post. 

 

After putting aside both Stuart Jeffries’s Grand Hotel Abyss: The Lives of the Frankfurt School and Frank Blaichman’s Rather Die Fighting I started Adam Hochschild’s 2016 Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936–1939. So far it’s been very good.

Listening. At least for one day last week the January 6 Hearings were back at it again. In addition to the many other ongoing political developments this has provided no shortage of material for my favorite podcasts. 

Watching. Mr. Robot continues to entertain with its crazy plot twists, great writing and superb acting. I also caught a few episodes of Stranger Things. Tuesday I took in the January 6 Hearings.

Everything else. Met my professor buddies for wine yesterday at an area winery. The weather has been nice so I’ve been reading on my porch. All good things.

  1. I am so jealous of the spots you and your friend go for drinks. They look just so relaxing and beautiful. Have a great weekend.

    • You are most welcome! I seem to be a sucker for heavy reading. Maybe I need to read some lighter stuff for a little break.

  2. I’m glad you were able to set aside some books and make a space for a book that is working for you. Spain in Our Hearts: Americans in the Spanish Civil War, 1936–1939 sounds intriguing.

    Stranger Things was recommended to me yesterday, and I’d like to look for Mr. Robot, too.

    Beautiful photos.

  3. Looks like you listen to a few of the same podcasts I do. Mr. Robot! I don’t think I finished the final season…wow. I need to do that.
    How is A.C Grayling’s book on Descartes? I have a few of Grayling’s books but haven’t heard of this one.
    Looks like an amazing way to enjoy the summer: wine and outdoors. I hope you have a wonderful week.

    • Cool! Which ones? Right now I’m watching the first few episodes of season 3 and it’s great. As for A.C. Grayling’s book I’ve taken a break but I hope to get back to it soon. You have a wonderful week as well! Thanks for dropping by and commenting! Please visit again!
