Sunday Salon/The Sunday Post: A week devoted to Android Devices and Historical Romances


The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share news about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.

It is very hot in Delhi right now. Peak of Summer. The sun is merciless. I am also prone to severe sunburn. I do not venture out in the sun unless I am compelled to do so. And when/if I do go out, I apply sunscreen cream/lotion liberally and carry sunglasses and an umbrella. I have found out those are no protection once my skin gets burnt. 

What does one do, being cooped up at home? Surf the net, watch TV or read!. I do all three. Recently I bought an Android smartphone, so I spend a lot of time playing with that. I am yet to get familiar with all its functions and apps. However, I synced my google account and that has helped me clean all redundant contacts on gmail. All my devices are in total sync with each other and that has made life easy!!

Let me get back to reading.  I am reading e-books on my tab. I have downloaded a few reading apps and I can read almost all kinds of files. I have discovered a some websites where one can read online or download for free. I have been reading Historical Romances (Regency) all this past week. I seem to be hooked to those Regency novels. 

Next week, I will be busy. I will be doing admission work for grade 11. Whole of June and July.

    We are just in the edge of summer here in the southern US, but I can feel it coming. Right now, it feels good after this cold winter!

    Here's my Sunday Salon!

    We're only beginning to see some sun and feel some warmth here after there's been sun, rain and hailstorm ! Enjoy your smartphone and have a great week :)

    Summer is unofficially here in the Midwest. It's going to be beautiful this long weekend and I've enjoyed extended stretches out on our deck reading. Finished one book already.

    I hope you have a wonderful week and good luck staying unburnt. I have the same problem!!

    I chickened out an got an iPhone but my daughter has an Android and loves it. It's finally starting to be summer here in the southern US. I love the heat and can even put up with the humidity but my Irish heritage objects to too much sun so I have to slather on the sunscreen too! Look forward to hearing what Regencies you're reading. I go through huge Regency phases periodically and am always looking for new authors!

    Keep safe in the sun, very hot weather usually makes me very lethargic, and I also burn very easily.
    You can get addicted to them Smart phones :)
    Enjoy your reading.
    Have a great week and Happy Reading.
