Whew! Book Blogger Appreciation Week is over and what a busy week it was! I found lots of great new-to-me blogs and it was rather impressive to see just how big the book blogging community really is! Thanks again Amy!
I didn't get much read this past week, so I'm not quite done Perfume yet. I'm enjoying it, just too little time spent reading lately (and too much time reading blogs, cooking dinner, teaching...). But I did finally post my review of Sisters of Misery, which you can read here, and I did get a few books in mail this week.
The Translator: A Tribesman's Memoir of Darfur by Daoud Hari.
On Reading by André Kertész. B&W photos of people reading around the world. The pictures are very fun. I'll try to post some, some time soon.
Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 by David Petersen. I've read a couple good reviews of this one over at the Graphic Novel Challenge blog, and now that I've seen it for myself, the art is indeed fantastic! I think this'll make a good break from other reading during the Read-a-thon.
Written in Blood by Sheila Lowe. A review copy. It's a mystery and like the main character, the author is also a handwriting expert. It sounds like it might be fun.
Even though I'm not yet finished reading Perfume yet, I'm planning to start The Translator tonight. I'm reading it as part of Natasha's Reading and Blogging for Darfur project so I want to make sure I get it read and reviewed by the end of the month. Hard to believe that September will soon be over!
Next up, I'll announce the winner of my giveaway, so stay tuned! But in the meantime, tell Michele at A Reader's Respite the most memorable book you've read, and you'll have a chance to win a copy of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Burrows.
Have a great week!
