More This-n-That

Wow, is it Thursday already? Our contest for The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie ends tonight at 11:59 pm Pacific Time (that's -8 GMT). I'll go over to and have them pull a winner! My wish list has grown exponentially thanks to your entries...what great books you all listed! Some brought back wonderful memories and others I had to investigate, so thank you to everyone who participated and be sure to check back to see who won!

Next week is Banned Books Week and it's time to celebrate the freedom to read. We'll have another contest to win another book. If you think you might be interested in participating, I'll be posting details on Sunday. What banned book do you plan on reading next week? You'll find a comprehensive list and why they were banned here.

Oh, and speaking of banned books, remember all of the hullabaloo (is that a real word?) regarding The Jewel of Medina? The intrepid reviewers over at Smart Bitches, Trashy Books got their hands on a copy and you might find their review interesting....check it out here. Many thanks to Bookroom Reviews for the heads-up!


  1. I like your image for the contest - did you make that?

  2. Oh yes...just fiddling around. I'm not so good at stuff like that, I just play around with it until something comes out looking semi-okay. I wish I could churn out awesome graphics like some of the bloggers out there.


Fire away!
