Quickie

I'm sleepy, bored, tired, ready to go home. But, I wanted to pop in with a quickie post before I dive noselong into a book for the rest of the afternoon and then go home to nap.

The new Estella's Revenge is online! Read, enjoy! We have an interview with Colleen Gleason, a review of her new book The Bleeding Dusk, not to mention a bunch of other fantabulous features, columns and reviews. This month's Door Prize giveaway book is The Outlander, by Gil Adamson.

I have "You Make My Day" awards to give out! Both Dewey and Heather nominated me, and I thank them so very much. Both of their blogs make every day more interesting, but I'll gush about them some more later.

It's a dank, rainy, nasty day here. The PERFECT day to snuggle up with a book, so I'm gonna do just that.

See ya Sunday for the Sunday Salon!

  5. Amen to that, Amandaroo.

    Os, I should've known you'd pop out of the woodwork if I posted some sexual innuendo.

    Iliana, I hope you like it! And looking forward to whatever you post for TSS!

    Thanks, Nik! You too.

  6. I see you have Naomi Wolf's newie on your currently reading list. I'm very intrigued by this book at the moment. I keep seeing it around in bookstores and on people's laps at lunch time, but noone seems to be talking about it? I'm very keen to hear what you have to say about it.:D

  7. Cass, it's funny you should say that. I haven't seen anyone reading it, haven't seen it in any bookstores here, and only hear of it on NPR! I'll definitely keep you posted. Wolf's writing is great, as always, and her research seems quite astounding thus far.

  8. Although today we had beautiful weather and I had lots to do, I was kind of feeling the same way as you. Hubby is out of town, number 4 had to work, and my back could not stand being at the computer and was rebelling big time. So I thought, I will call my sister to see what kind of trouble we could get into. I thought that today was the perfect day to cast spells and maybe later sit on her porch and get drunk. But noooo, she had to go hiking. So like you I decided I would bury myself in a book--try to finish up Pnin. Doesn't he remind you of Mr. Magoo?

  9. Oh, BTW, have you heard about a book called Rescuing DiVinci? It is non-fiction. I heard a most interesting interview with the author on NPR's Studio 360 about how during WWII art collectors and museums hid all the art treasures we value from Hitler and the Nazis. Of course, this is pretty much common knowledge that they were looting art and people hid them, but the author went into great detail on what people went through to try and save all the art treasures we value. Just a plug for the book. I am thinking about ordering it.

  10. ok, addendum: The book is about how a 350 multinational task force set out to search and retrieve all the valuable art that Hitler and the Nazis stole. Anyway, it sounds interesting.

  11. I've barely had time to read blogs and must soon get back to books. Compounding the problem is several new books given to me for Christmas. Argh. It's a good kind of trouble.

    Enjoy your read and hope it makes your day. Oh yes, one more time - Kavalier & Clay to win!
