It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? (Aug. 23rd)

It is my Birthday!

That said it is on to the Books, which really are my favorite subject anyway.

*Last week I published two reviews — The Blind Contessa’s New Machine by Carey Wallace and Here  by Wislawa Szymborska

*I have been named a board member of the Northshore Literary Society. I am very excited about this. The Northshore Literary Society is a non-profit organization that strives to be a focal point for our vibrant literary community through social and educational events, supporting each others work and promoting literacy through the parish (that’s county to those of you outside Louisiana).

* I received a review copy of J. K. Beck’s When Blood Calls in the mail, so I’m going to try to finish that this week.

* Checked out and to be Read Johannes Cabal the Necromancer by Jonathan Howard.

* Coming Soon: My very first Author Interview…. 5 Minutes With ( you’ll have to wait and see).

* I just found out that one of my favorite books has been optioned for a movie. While I know films regularly slaughter our most beloved titles, I believe the author diversion whatever financial boost such a boon affords and all the attention that it will draw to an amazing book: Waiting for Columbus by Thomas Trofimuk.

That’s my week!
