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 am an author, I sell books for a living, and I love music like there's no tomorrow. I've experienced much of this country, from forested hills of the East, to the golden plains of the Midwest, the sandy beaches of the Southeast, and the oh-so-majestic mountains of the Rockies. And when all else fails, eat chocolate.
I just discovered this book the other day - even though it's been out for about seven months now. It was placed on our children's octogon table and the second I saw it, I thought, "Oh I have to read this." I couldn't just ignore that cute little bear on a book. I'm a sucker for stories like this and honestly, when my sister has kids, these are the sort of books I'm going to read to them. Otto is a bear who lives in a book. He's happiest when children read his book, but when they're off doing other things, then he'll leave his book and play around the house by himself. But then one day his book is left behind...now what will Otto do? Initially I thought this book was done by the same author/illustrator as Orange Bear Apple Pear because of how cute Otto was, but soon realized I was wrong. That doesn't matter. He's still adorable and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this book.
