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've been so busy working and working that I haven't had time to read - much less update this blog. Which is pretty annoying, so I made February my month to get things done. There are two books that came out recently that I've been dying to get my hands on. One is Beth Revis's Shades of Earth, the final book in her trilogy, and another is this one, Veronica Rossi's second. I read her first book when it was still an advance reader copy. I wasn't sure it would be something I would be into, but I was wrong. I had a great time reading it and looked forward to the next book - which is finally out. I was thrilled when I saw it on my cart (being in charge of the teen section at my bookstore and all) and knew I needed to find the time to read it. So continues the story of Aria and Perry to find the Still Blue - a place safe from the Aether that twists and curls through the sky to kill wanderers at any minute. Will they find it? (probably not in this book) What will happen if they don't? (now that, friends, is the real question and what I'm interested in). Throw in the other unique characters that have their own set of issues and it's bound to be a good time.
