Welcome one and all. Looking for a good book for friends? Family? Kids? Then come here or bring them yourself. Spread the word!
I read in a whole range of genres from science fiction and fantasy to crafting and children's books so there should be something for everyone here!
The point of this blog is to just put the word out concerning good books. As a bookseller for Barnes & Noble, we get to recommend books to our customers, often ending with happy readers. So I'm just doing here what I do at work; getting the word out on good books for people to enjoy.
New books are posted every Saturday, occasionally with a more in-depth Epinions review. Likewise, since I'm a music junkie, I include a little note about what I currently have playing in my playlist (don't worry, my music tastes range just as widely as my book lust).
From time to time, recommendations are punctuated by what I'm currently reading or what I've just finished, giving you even more insight into what we booksellers read.
So sit back, grab a cup of coffee and pluck out a book you'd like to read, because today begins my ever-lasting love affair with books.
I write, I live, I love, and I sell books. I've traveled all over this fair country, including the golden plains of the Midwest, the sandy beaches of the Southeast, and the oh-so-majestic mountains of the Rockies. Oh, and did I mention I love chocolate? A LOT?
Honestly, this is one of those books that I can't believe I haven't recommended already. Why? Because it's utterly adorable! All right, I'll try not to get too gooshy, but it is a very cute book. It's a simple story about a dog who loves books so much he opens his own bookstore. However, no one seems to be as interested in books as him, so he resorts to doing what he loves best - reading! His imagination takes over the pages until finally someone pops into the store who loves books just as much as he does. One of my favorite things about this book is the illustrations. The little dog is so expressive with his little ears and face. The colors are bright and fun, and kids will enjoy all the quick adventures dog has as he reads his books. It's one of those books that shows kids just how great it is to read and how magical it can be. And I certainly agree with dog!
