Marvelous Mondays 04-06-09

Hi everyone! I do hope you had a fabulous weekend. We have had sunshine, a rare treat lately, so I enjoyed it immensely!

I have been thinking about these Marvelous Mondays and was wondering one thing: those who have a post that gets mentioned, would it be nice to have a 'Marvelous Mondays' award to put on your post that won? Let me know if this sounds cool or if it sounds way lame.

I read lots of marvelous posts this week to share with you! And I have included as many as I thought appropriate for one post, lol.

~Ti from Book Chatter and Other Stuff wrote a wonderful and personal review on Jodi Picoult's Nineteen Minutes.
~ I enjoyed Beth from Beth Fish Read's review of Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher. She has convinced me I should listen to the audio book.
~ Alyce of At Home with Books read The Strength of a Sparrow by Tim Anders. She did not like it, but she wrote a great review on why she didn't.

~ Eva from A Striped Armchair gave a great, interesting synopsis of her Vacation reads on Sunday Salon.
~ I am loving the Teaser Tuesdays quote from Richard Dawkins' The God Delusion on Between the Covers.

~Heather's review of The Obama Revolution on her site Book Addiction was passionate in both its praises and its critiques. (And I am not just saying that because I am a fan of Obama.)
~ You know I LOVE The Book Chook. I mean, she just knows exactly what she is talking about when it comes to children and literacy. I should know, I have a degree in Birth-Kindergarten and I know a lot about children. The answer to Letter to the Book Chook is once again spot on. Check it out.

~Serena interviewed Poet Dan Albergotti this week on Savvy Verse & Wit. It was especially interesting in the midst of her Poetry Challenge.

READING ON THEIR OWN (reviews of books not seen everywhere):
~ Lisa on 5 Minutes for Books wrote a review on On That Day Everybody Ate: One Woman's Story of Hope and Possibility in Haiti by Margaret Trost. It is a story that will touch the heartstrings.
~ Caspette of The Narrative Causality read and reviewed Fried Eggs with Chopsticks by Polly Evans. It looks like a book I would LOVE reading, what with it being about a different culture AND nonfiction. I mean, hello, how have I not heard about this book?
~ Laura from Laura's Book and Movie Reviews reviewed Chloe by Lyn Cote

~ Do you know anyone who can read faster than Book Dragon? Over 7200 pages in March and she has "slowed down"????
~Have you checked out 1morechapter's Bookworms Carnival?
~I love the list Ali from Worducopia made called Books to Drool Over.
~Check and see what nonfiction book made tears fall at Book, Line, and Sinker
