Sunday Salon hosted by Readerbuzz is simply a place for us to link up and to share what we have been doing during the week. Sunday Salon is a great way to visit other blogs and join in the conversations going on there.
Another tough but satisfying work week. I caught up watching the rest of the Madalorian episodes and now I'm waiting for the fifth one of Season 2 to come out. I played Beat Saber with my son this weekend. It's a VR rhythm game that takes place in a surrealistic neon noir environment and features the player slicing blocks representing musical beats with a pair of contrasting colored sabers. I love it since it allows me to work on my eye-hand coordination which is good for our brains, especially as we age.
Hope you are all well. Stay safe and take care of each other.
Mailbox Monday Edition
Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week. Mailbox Monday now has a permanent home on its blog. Link up to share your MM.
It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever-growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.
What I reviewed and/or featured last week:
A well-written Austenesque historical fiction novel that I enjoyed immensely.
A guest review of a fun, intriguing, and delightful cozy mystery with fun characters—and a good mystery to boot.
This is an interesting collection of poems from a man in touch with his feelings, his creativity, and his inspirations.
Check out some of the books on the topic of neuroscience that I love to read
Stop by and enter my giveaways!

Hope you all have a great reading week.

Beat Saber reminds me of a mini- game from the old Wii Sports Resort game haha. Minus the VR part, Those are fun.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
VR makes it such an all encompassing game because all your senses are on high alert. I'm enjoying it!Delete
I'm glad you had a satisfying week and hope this one is more relaxing! Happy Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Anne - Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post
Have a good week, Laura. The VR game sounds fun but challenging!ReplyDelete
It is fun, and I need fun on the weekends. :-)Delete
I think I’d be terrible at that game. Coordination is not my thing! I’m surprised I can walk without falling on my face. Have a good week!ReplyDelete
Aj @ Read All The Things!
But you've taken on running so your coordination can't be that bad. ;-)Delete
I hope reading and crosswords are enough to keep my brain active. I haven’t had a chance to try a VR game, I’d like to though.ReplyDelete
Wishing you a great reading week
Reading and crosswords are great activities to keep the mind active.Delete
The Paris Dressmaker cover stopped me in my tracks. The word "Paris" is usually enough to add a book to my TBR, but that cover adds to the book's allure.ReplyDelete
I've enjoyed Nonfiction November so much this year. I've ended up with a wonderful list of books to look for.
I've never played a VR game, nor even a video game, I guess, but it sounds like great fun.
I know, right? Such a gorgeous cover! Nonfiction November has been a lot of fun. I've not only discovered new books but new blogs too.Delete
So many tempting books to add to my list, beginning with The Paris Dressmaker. Enjoy your upcoming week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATESReplyDelete
I offer supplementary reading classes at school and part of it is a computer "game" that mainly develops your cognitive skills. I mainly have youngsters but it's soooo good for adults as well! We need to keep those cognitive skills as sharp as a knife.ReplyDelete
The Paris Dressmaker has the most gorgeous cover.
Happy reading and have a great weekend.
So true, plus we need to remember to enjoy playing like we did when we were kids.Delete
And yep, I love that gorgeous book cover too!
Nice looking assortment of books. Such an interesting variety. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Great looking books Laura. Nice and varied. The sabre game sounds fun, not sure I'd be very good at it!ReplyDelete
Looks like a busy week in books too. The sabre game sounds fun.ReplyDelete
I like the looks of Of Darkness and Light and Back to the Burgh looks fun.
Have a good week and Happy Reading!
My husband and I had intended to wait until all Mandalorian season 2 episodes were released before we started watching it. That resolution didn't even last a week so now we're anxiously awaiting each new episode along with the rest of the world!ReplyDelete
The Paris Dressmaker book has a beautiful cover.
Enjoy your week!
