Salon — noun, a room in a large house in which guests are received.
A lovely salon awaits guests at Château de Vaulogé, complete with comfortable leather seating, fine art work, and a collection of books for reading — in a setting filled with daylight yet warmly decorated to provide a cozy retreat. This salon is perfect for relaxing or joining in conversation with your bookie companions. (Yes, I slightly altered the wording I found with the photo.)First, our books
I did finish reading Jane's book (Making Toast by Roger Rosenblatt) before falling asleep last night and, now that I'm back home, I need to get to these library books so I can clear my shelves. Fourteen books checked out? Oh, my goodness!
Due Date ...... TitleI really want to get back to Re-Claiming the Bible for a Non-Religious World that I got last week. And while I was house sitting for Jane, two more books arrived — the two chick lit books by Starr Ambrose I won during the Readathon from Lisa @ World of Books: Lie to Me (2008) and Thieves Like Us (2010).
11/28 ... Coming Up for Air (finished, ready to return)

11/29 ... The Sandalwood Tree (could renew, but 360 pages)
12/3 ... My Petition for More Space (not in the right mood)
12/7 ... Dangerous Neighbors (yes...)
12/7 ... Ghosts in the Garden (yes...)
12/7 ... Into the Tangle of Friendship (yes...)
12/7 ... Seeing Past Z (yes...)
12/7 ... Still Love in Strange Places (...to these 5 by Kephart)

If the grand salon pictured above didn't have enough books in it for us bookies, how about sitting together in this room? Which would you prefer?
