Blogger SHOUT-OUTS!! Week #5



This week I found a ton of good discussion posts!  I had trouble narrowing it down!  Had trouble finding more upcoming bookish events and giveaways.  Check out this week's links!


BEST BOOK REVIEWS I READ THIS WEEK:

1. AnnaSaurus Rex is back on The Steadfast Reader, this time with a review on Conversations with History.

2. It's not a book review, but not a discussion post either exactly.  At any rate, I loved Peter's post on being a Faulkner virgin, on Kyusi Reader. :)

3. Vasilly has convinced me to give Ruby a read after all.


AWESOME DISCUSSION/NON-REVIEW POSTS TO CHECK OUT:

1. Trish of Love, Laughter, and Insanity had a great post Sunday on how we can like some things in books that we don't in movies, and vice versa.

2. April made up a list of books for Social/Religious Conservatives to read with an open mind.  Pretty great idea!  Plus anyone can find a book to read on it.

3. Michele does an expose on Hachette, letting those of us who did not remember (or did not know) about the whole DRM thing.

4. Also be sure to check out Adam's guest post on Lost Generation Reader for #AusteninAugust, entitled Jane Austen & The Art of Walking!

5. Jennifer posted such a cute list of Five Summer Reads Paired with Ice Cream!

6. Shannon makes the Ultimate Feminist Reading List of Upcoming Titles.  I don't normally shout-out to someone twice in one week, but Shannon ALSO posted this really awesome post about Why She (and, really, many bloggers) do not accept self-pub books for review.  I do, but as you can see from my comment there, I also agree with her.


UPCOMING/CURRENT BOOKISH EVENTS:

1. Are you an Anne Rice fan?  Then you'll definitely want to check out Michelle's Never-Ending Anne Rice Challenge!


GIVEAWAYS

1. Tiffany of About to Read is giving away an Isla and the Happily Ever After gift package!
