So, wow, it's the last day of August. Where did the time go? It was a crazy busy month for me, with our big move, the kids starting school, and all kinds of other stuff. I tried not to neglect Ye Olde Blog, but it still happened a bit. Even now, after 3 weeks of packing, moving, and settling in, I've got lots of work to do. Anyway, there are just a few things I want to mention:
BestBooks - Julie Smith writes the funniest, most concise reviews ever. It's refreshing to get her perspective in just a few words. Her recent review of Breaking Dawn made me laugh out loud.
* Speaking of awards, I hope you're following the fun on My Friend Amy's blog. I love the idea of Book Blogger Appreciation Week. Unfortunately, I missed the deadline for nominations, but good luck everybody. Fabulous idea, Amy. I love it.
* You've probably noticed that I've been reading review books almost exclusively. That's because I'm often under deadline to finish them. I love review books, but I'm also itching to read some of the novels I've been neglecting. A couple of my favorite authors have come out with new books this month, so hopefully, I'll be getting to them soon. What can you look forward to this month on BBB? Lots of reviews, a couple of author interviews and at least one giveaway. So, definitely stay tuned.
* Okay, this last one is for my 9-year-old son. He has been hounding me about checking out a certain book from the library. The problem is, he's not sure of the title. His teacher read the book aloud to his class last year, then she retired, so I don't have her email address. So, I was hoping some of you teachers/librarians/readers can help us out. According to him, the book was about some boys who race their bikes down Death Hill. That's all he can remember - not very helpful. He thinks the book is by Thomas Rockwell, the author of How to Eat Fried Worms, but we couldn't find any info when we googled him. Any help will be much appreciated!
* My stomach's growling and I've got to get ready for church, so I'm signing out. Have a great week, everyone. Happy Reading!
