This Week’s Links

Some interesting links from my Google Reader this week:

Book Reviews:

Shelly at Write for a Reader has a review of “Wintergirls” that can basically be summed up as “WOW!” and was the final straw for me – I put the book on hold at my library and will be picking it up this weekend.

Discussions:

At Books and Movies, Carries is continuing her to share her favorite books in a variety of genres.  This week she is discussing mysteries.  I’m bookmarking this post in case I feel the need to come back to mysteries, a genre I’ve largely ignored since my high school Mary Higgins Clark binge.

After finishing 100 books already this year (yes, you read that right, no, it isn’t a typo), Swapna wants to know how YOU read.

Amy of My Friend Amy’s Blog stirred up a HUGE conversation when she asked whether people thought blogging was a community or a connection, based on a comment she read on another blog.

At Age 30 – A Lifetime of Books Heather talked about the wonderful feeling of reading a review and knowing the book would be just PERFECT for someone else, if not for you.  Do you recommend books to friends? How do they react? Heather wants to know.

Book Blog Giveaways:

At Wendi’s Book Corner you have the chance to win any or all of the Kitty Norville books by Carrie Vaughn.  This isn’t usually my sort of genre, but I’m considering looking into these books as I’ve seen a ton of positive reviews from bloggers I respect lately.

Stressed about money in this economic climate? Nicole of Linus’ Blanket has a copy of “Fight For Your Money” to give away.

Natasha of Maw Books went to an author event with Jodi Picoult this week.  She not only brought back information and a video of Jodi doing a reading to share with her readers, but she also brought back SEVEN books autographed by Ms. Picoult to give to one lucky reader, include a hardcover of Picoult’s newest book, “Handle With Care.”

Swapna has a giveaway of an amazing sounding book, Saffron Dreams, that I REALLY want to win.

Mommy Blog Giveaways:

A couple of giveaways this week over at “Deal”ectible Mommies for a Lillebaby Baby Carrier, and Fresh Baby’s So Easy Baby Foodkit.
