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.
After a rainy and gloomy week, Friday was gorgeous, warm enough to go digging for my shorts and go for a bike ride. A one-day Indian summer weather? I'll take it. The bike bath that snakes along the southern shores of Montreal was strewn with autumn leaves that smelled wonderful. It was a bit blustery but it felt exhilarating to be out flying up and down the bike path by the river.
On Saturday, I tidied my home work office, read my current book, and then relaxed with hubby to watch the feel-good movie Fishermen's Friends, a British romantic comedy film based on a true story. It was a hoot!
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:
Once again, Laura Morelli transports us to Italy, this time to medieval Florence where Michelangelo sets to create the splendid David sculpture. The topic and the book cover attracted me instantly! This was a good read.
Books to Help You Cope With Tough Times
If there was ever a time we needed help in coping and dealing with tough times, it's today. I'm a big believer in positive psychology and I'm proactive in spreading its message both in my personal life and in my work (I'm a Special care Counsellor in psychogeriatrics). These three products have been useful in keeping a smile on my face.

Hope you all have a great reading week.
It's dipped into the 50s (F) twice this fall, so we would really like some cooler weather. Anything to keep the hurricanes at bay.ReplyDelete
Organic Home sounds very promising. You will have to share more with us.
Fishermen's Friends is a romantic comedy, eh? My favorite movie genre. I haven't seen a good one in so long.
Have a lovely week.
It's more than romance though. It's about the value of community. I thought it was great.Delete
Sounds like a nice Friday We have had gorgeous weather and are enjoying it as much as possible. Our leaves have barely started to turn / fall. But later this week it will turn cooler, which is lovely too. Have a nice week!ReplyDelete

THANK FORWARD sounds really great. My Sunday Salon postReplyDelete
That sounds like a wonderful bike ride! I love the blustery fall weather with leaves flying around. :)ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing those books, we allneed the encouragement I think!
The bike ride and the move both sound perfect. Little ways to experience happiness and enjoy life - so important.ReplyDelete
It sure is nice to get out in the fresh air. Although I’m walking, I haven’t been on a bike for far too many years. I like the sound of The Modern Organic Home. I’m going to look that up straight away.ReplyDelete
I'll keep an eye out for Fisherman's Friends. Sounds like my kind of movie!ReplyDelete
That movie looks good, and so do your books! Thanks for sharing, and enjoy your week. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATESReplyDelete
Nice looking assortment of books. It snowed this week which lessens my hopes for one more Fall warmup. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
It seemed like yesterday it was summer and now we're aleady taking about snow.Delete
Glad you were able to get out on a nice bike ride! Gotta enjoy the weather before it gets too cold. We got snow on Sunday and it's freezing. But they say it'll warm back up a bit by Thursday.ReplyDelete
Looks like you've got some great books going. I hope you have a lovely and safe week!
I'm just not ready for winter, as inevitable as it is here in Quebec.Delete
Fisherman's Friends does look good.ReplyDelete
The Orphan Thief looks good too.
Have a great week, Laura.
The movie looks fun - love the music.ReplyDelete
I like the looks of The Orphan Thief.
Glad you got a day out on the bike. Stay warm, stay well and Happy Reading!
A bike ride on a beautiful fall day sounds lovely. Fisherman's Friends sounds good! Enjoy your week!ReplyDelete
