~ One of my favorite books, Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford, was a Jeopardy question.
Reviews and blog posts that have me adding to my to-read list:
~ Haunt Me Still by Jennifer Lee Carrell, reviewed by Tasha at Truth, Beauty, Freedom, and Books
Book to movie news:
~ It looks like the brilliant Kenneth Branagh may be directing the film version of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer. Loved this book – and I bet Branagh will do it justice!
~ I’m giving away an ARC of Tom Perrotta’s The Leftovers to one blogger willing to do a buddy read and joint review in September.
~ If you’ve read my blog for any amount of time, you already know how much I love Wendell Berry. I’m even hosting a reading challenge dedicated to him! Well, if you haven’t given him a try, and you love audiobooks, you can now download the audio version of his novel, Hannah Coulter, for free. If you’re not a fan of Christian fiction, don’t let the “Christian Audio” web site deter you. Hannah Coulter wasn’t published by a Christian publishing house and is not an evangelistic or proselytizing book – it is simply the beautiful story of a woman’s life.
