    I really loved Jamie’s discussion of when to post reviews for ARCS earlier this week — very interesting to see perspectives from bloggers, editors, authors, etc.

    Thank you for the awesome links this week, C! xo

    Wonderful collection of bookish links!

    I was pleased that I could enter the War Through the Generations prize giveaway (even though I’d read only 2 of the 5-book goal I set for myself)

      Candace – I have fun doing it – and it helps me read through my Reader contents more thoughtfully instead of just skimming. 🙂

    Thank you for the link! I loved the LA Times article, it made me laugh several times and reassured me that published writers have just as hard a time sitting down and writing as unpublished ones.

    That’s so cool that Vasilly made it into the LA Times!
