Interesting Posts:

~Kaye at Pudgy Penguin Perusals asks an interesting question: Do you notice that people on fiction covers never have their eyes featured?
~Rebecca from The Book Lady made me laugh out loud with her Adventures in Bookselling.

Reading On Their Own (different books read & reviewed than the rest):
~Blog of a Bookworm has a review of All That Matters by Wayson Choy
~Heather at
Age 30+...a Lifetime of Books read and reviewed The Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolver. She ran into the same problem I have had so far- no other Kingsolver books seem to live up to The Poisonwood Bible. Maybe it is our expectations. I am going to take Heather's advice and try not to put mine up so high when reading The Bean Trees.
~Bibliophile By the Sea has a new review of the classic Steinbeck The Winter of Our Discontent.
~Bart's Bookshelf has a review of the graphic novel Bourbon Island 1730 by Appollo & Lewis Trondheim


  1. Funny that you say that about Kingsolver--the Poisonwood Bible was actually my least favorite of all her books!

  2. I find that people either love that book or hate it.
