Books In The Mail

One of the benefits of book blogging, is that you meet other book bloggers from various parts of the country. I have “met” several nice folks and visit their sites often. Another perk to visiting their sites often is that they sometimes have book giveaways or online book clubs where they will send you the book for participating. I have been lucky enough to score some great books just by participating. My bookshelf thanks you. The sites that I vist are noted on the right side of my page.

As a matter of fact, there are several books coming to me right now! I do hope they get here before the July 4th holiday as I really want to crack them open this weekend. I am sending mail vibes to my mailbox right now.

Last night I finished my book club pick for July. My group has not met to discuss it yet so I will post the review after our meeting on July 10th. I just opened Stone Creek, which was sent to me by Jennifer over at Book Club Girl. She is hosting a Blog Radio Show on July 23rd at 7pm EST and will be discussing this book with the author. Click here to read more about the show.

I am also reading two other books right now. It’s hard to juggle all the different reads but what do you do when you want to read everything right now?? I have no patience apparently.

Hope you all have a nice 4th. We’ve been invited to a friends’ house for a pool party/BBQ and then afterward, we will hit a park to see the local fireworks. Simple, but fun.

Don’t you love long weekends?

Guilty Pleasure

I have to make a confession. I have been watching Legally Blonde The Musical: The Search For Elle Woods on MTV. I recorded it so that my son could see the audition process, but after the first show I was hooked. I know this post is not really book related… but there are a series of books by Amanda Brown that the movie and Broadway show were based on. I know, a very loose connection indeed.

Anyway… the audition process is brutal! Singing while on an exercise bike, dancing in stilettos on a cobblestone street, etc. I had no desire to see this show at all but I’ve decided that when it comes to L.A. in August ’09, that I am going to go. If you don’t have a lot of time to watch stuff like this, TIVO it like I do and watch it while you are eating breakfast. You can also watch full episodes online. If you watch it, tell me what you think of it.

Chatting with friends about books and life…
