Hello, Welcome! I’m away at the Book Blogger Convention, but I’m glad you stopped by.
Of course, I’m assuming you’ve never been here before… But even if you have, I wanted to share a few posts that I’m particularly proud of. You see, I’m not your traditional book blogger in that I don’t do a lot of the typical book blogger things. Like thorough and thoughtful reviews, author interviews and what not. I do share thoughts about books I read and I love to chat about books and stuff, but I’m no where near nor desire to be professional about it all. (I know I said I was at the convention learning about all kinds of blogger type topics – but I’m really only there to meet ‘in person’ all the fun people that I’ve gotten to know online! Stats?! don’t care. Building readership? don’t care. Improving Content? yea, maybe. whatever.
Since you’re here, I’ll direct you forthwith to a few posts that best reflect my style of ‘reviewing’.
Wind, Sand and Stars by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry (he wrote the Little Prince if you read that as a kid?) I will be re-reading this for the 2010 Re-Reading Challenge. LOVED this. A beautiful memoir.
St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves by Karen Russell. Fun and quirky short stories.
I Sent a Letter to My Love by Berniece Rubens. Obscure book, quite intense.
A Separate Peace by John Knowles – my most visited post. (I assume students are searching for what to write in some assigned reading report?)
OH! do leave a comment and tell me how you found me or why you visited? and tell me your favorite most recent book? I’ll visit you when I get back. I promise.
Have a nice day!
