Can we just agree that it is so wonderful that no one expects me to post links in a timely manner? I have been starring things of interest for months. Just take from it what you can, and yes I know that is has already been seen and discussed. 🙂
- Earlier this fall, I was in love with the trailer for The Social Network if only because I love the rendition of Creep that played in the background. After eying the book in bookstores for months, Swapna has convinced me that I need to read The Accidental Billionaires, by Ben Mezrich.
- I started reading Finny, by Justin Kramon and lo and behold, Candace mentions a great gift-giving opportunity and charitable donation that Justin Kramon has arranged for autographed purchases of his book.
- Jill made me cry tears of laughter with her review of Crescendo, by Becca Fitzpatrick. Power to her, because I just couldn’t make it past Hush, Hush. Best line ever in a review – “It’s not a good idea to dump her Guardian Angel, however, since all kinds of people want to kill Nora, including the reader.”
- Tracey made Upside Down Pizza, and now I visit the post at least once a day and pet the picture. This just might be my contribution to Christmas Dinner.
- Nymeth still hasn’t lost her you-must-add-this-to-your-tbr mojo. I love reading about the Brontes and I had not heard of The Taste of Sorrow, by Jude Morgan. Jen – take note.
- I don’t think I have yet ventured into steampunk, at least not on purpose, but Liz B. has me thinking that The Iron Duke, by Heljean Brook might be a place to start.
- Christina at BrontëBlog mentions the debate about Heathcliff’s skin color. It makes me think how interesting it is to try to interpret how others use language, and what it might have meant in another time and culture, and why we so blatantly ignore what it might have meant. Whew!
- Jeanne made a great case for reading The Devil In the White City, by Erik Larson. Loved this review. Now I want to read the book all over again.
- Anastasia found a Sherlock Holmes book, of which I was not aware (bottom of the post). Sherlock Holmes and the Ghosts of Bly: And Other New Adventures of the Great Detective, by Donald Thomas.
- I can’t get enough of the ZooBorns.
- It surprises people that I am not a huge fan of chocolate. If a chocolate cake is placed before me, me – the girl who eats everything, can easily turn it down. Won’t even bat an eye, miss it, or be tempted at all. UNLESS…it is molten or warm…then I must have it. These probably aren’t gooey enough for me, but Meg had the word hot in front of chocolate, so I had to take a look.
