Don't forget to post links to your book blog,book reviews,memes,giveaways,etc...in the post below!
I feel like I am trying to make up for lost time! Chrissie's Blog she has a weekly meme called Radiant Reviews which I enjoy because it's trying to promote the Book Reviews we do which sometimes get overlooked. One of my favorite reviews I did was the "The Brief Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao" by Junot Diaz. He won the Pulizter Prize for this book in 2008 I believe. His characters resonated with me deeply long after I finished the book I also felt like I learned alot about the Dominican Republic which is a bonus.I would highly recommend this book.(For the full review of this book see the Dec 21 2009 post) Now on to Crazy-For-Books I believe the question was how do you feel when you lose a follower? I am going to be totally transparent here the first time it happened it bothered me alot! I had just posted a review on a Christian book and that same day I lost a follower! I am not going
to stop being a Christian just to get followers,but I was concerned that I had offended someone. I actually
gained 4 or 5 followers a few days later so I could laugh at it later! The important thing is to post reviews of books that I enjoy first and foremost ,if someone happens to like the types of books I review then great,but if
they don't .... to each his own I guess. I become more concerned with trying to please myself(at the risk of sounding selfish). I cant please everyone because then it becomes loathsome and it's just not as much fun. Let's face it why in the world would I do this for free if I didn't just absolutely love it?
On Saphires's blog is a weekly meme called Postal Thursdays where we discuss what we got in the mailbox this week I just recently got a copy of "The Truth abou Delilah Blue" By Trish Cohen which I had been fiending for and "Shangai Girls" by Lisa See. (Thanks Amazon) I don't know which one I will review first but once I get unpacked all the way I can then better organize my time. Well untill next week stay gold!
also go to www.busymomswholovetoread.blogspot.com she has a linky for giveaways on Thursdays. next week I will split this up so I can display the buttons and not leave anyone out.
