Next up, the winner of Gone, chosen by Random.org is: Tina!
Thanks to every one who read the interview and threw there names in the hate. I’ll have another giveaway coming up soon, so keep your eye out for that.
Ever aware of my tally (bottom left sidebar,) I thought to myself recently how it’s been a while since I’ve last blogged about Richard Armitage. Well, I can’t let that stand, and so here’s what I’ve got: a Guy of Gisborne necklace. (I made it as an example of a DIY photo necklace for one of my library’s teen programs.) Please forgive the bad lighting – fluorescent! – and the general blur of the picture.
And with this, I add another mark to the tally. I’ll be nearing double digits very, very soon. Any guesses on where the tally will stand at the end of the year…?
In Pursuing the Lioness Challenge news…Rhiannon is a total PLC rockstar! She’s been reviewing Pierce books and dropping the links back here. (I really need to pull it together and start the Immortals series myself.) You can find links to all of her reviews here.
I was walking by a store window the other day and saw the t-shirt on the right. Of course they were out of my size (that’s always the way it goes,) but isn’t it, well, awesome?
Since my French – meaning what little of it I picked up in high school – is now beyond rusty, I looked up “lire” and learned that it means to read. (Which makes an awful lot of sense, really, and works out better than “to carry,” which it might have been.)
And finally, a few books I received this week that I wanted to mention:
Sourcebooks was kind enough to send me Read, Remember, Recommend for Teens, a neat journal that offers suggested reading and allows you to keep track of what you’ve already read.
From Henry Holt I received Claire Harman’s Jane’s Fame: How Jane Austen Conquered the World. I was on the waiting list at the library for this one, and so was thrilled to get a copy.
And in the middle there, Justin Cronin’s The Passage. I’ve heard so many good things about it; can’t wait to see what all the buzz is about!
