Here are the few things I did find between driving to & from the hospital, talking to nurses & doctors, etc. I thought these were just too good not to post.
Books & Reading:
- Earlier this year I read Lit! A Christian Guide to Reading Books by Tony Reinke and liked it so much that I've recommended it to several others. So when I came across this giveaway on the xxxxxxxxx, Ixxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx xnew I had to help spread the news. Looks like it's open until July 26 so head on over and enter for a chance to win a copy. :-) Nevermind, she closed it early. Doesn't look like such a great blog after all - my bad for posting it here.
- After coming across this blog post at Kristi Loves Books about this new book (& reading the first few pages of it) both my daughter & I have added Code Name Verity to our TBR list. (Will we be able to wait & suggest it at book club to see if we can read it there? I don't know, it might be hard to wait that long.) Anyway, wanting to learn more about both the book & author, I found this interview of Elizabeth Wein where she mentions several of the books that influenced her in writing Code Name Verity (just what I need, more books to make my TBR list even longer =D). I was tickled to see that one was The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society since I won a (used) copy of it as a runner-up on one of Misty's (aka The Pen Thief) giveaway contests. (It's a good read too.)
