And here we have yet another week where my links post is going up on Sunday instead of Saturday. Sigh. I haven’t been blogging near as much, so you’d think I would be really rocking NaNoWriMo, right? Wrong. I’m so behind. Oh, well – here are the links I saved to share with you this week.
~ Penguin has a list of authors and their gift lists of books – what they will give for the holidays, and what they would like to get. Includes Tana French, Elizabeth Gilbert, Sue Grafton, Stewart O’Nan, and many more.
~ Author Fiona Robyn is looking for bloggers to participate in a Blogsplash for her new novel, Thaw, that’s coming out in March.
Reviews that have me adding to my to-read list:
~ Pirate Latitudes by Michael Crichton, reviewed by Michele at A Reader’s Respite.
~ The Inklings of Oxford by Harry Lee Poe and James Ray Veneman, reviewed by Carrie at 5 Minutes for Books.
~ Sunflowers: A Novel of Vincent Van Gogh by Sheramy Bundrick, reviewed by Bonnie at Redlady’s Reading Room.
~ Stone’s Fall by Iain Pears, reviewed by Fleur Fisher.
~ MizB is hosting the Read Your Own Books Challenge.
~ J.T. is hosting the World Religion Challenge.
~ Swapna is hosting the South Asian Authors Challenge.
~ Remember I said I was going to host another challenge in addition to the Essay Reading Challenge? My plan was to do a Gilmore Girls Challenge, but Shona at Shona’s Book Shelves beat me to it, so I’ll be joining her Rory Gilmore Books Project.
~ And if you still don’t have enough challenges on your plate, check out A Novel Challenge – a blog that’s keeping track of the multitudes of challenges for book bloggers!
~ J.T. at Bibliofreak is giving away a Jane Austen action figure as part of an Everything Austen mini-challenge.
