I am supposed to be cleaning my house at this moment, in preparation for most-welcome weekend guests, but I’m finding it hard to get in the vacuuming groove, so I think I’ll give you all a little preview of some upcoming book reviews you can look forward to here (as in, yes, I got books for Christmas, whee!).
The Golden Legacy: How Golden Books Won Children’s Hearts, Changed Publishing Forever and Became an American Icon Along the Way by Leonard S. MarcusThis was #1 on my wish list. I’m almost done with it. Can’t wait to tell you all about it.
Beyond Plot: The Art of Subtext by Charles Baxter
No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog by Margaret Mason
Yes, I’m committed to entertaining YOU–and to hopefully growing my audience.
The Crafter’s Companion: Tips, Tales and Patterns from a Community of Crafters
Dispatches from my other life.
The Machine in the Nursery: Incubator Technology and the Origins of Neonatal Care
by Jeffrey P. BakerFascinating stuff, background for 2 writing projects I’m working on. Thank God for Interlibrary loan (click the link to find out why).
Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself by Alan Alda Not nearly as hokey as the title would suggest. The man can write. More later.
Sigh. I’ve put of the inevitable long enough. Back to the vacuum. With DH gone off running errands and the kids upstairs, at least I can crank up the Pavarotti.
So, look for reviews of these and more in the coming weeks and don’t forget the new Wordamour Giveaway, starting January 4 and running till Feburary 4!
