A girl and her books (fka The Printed Page), who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).
Alyce at At Home With Books is hosting in January. Please stop by her wonderful blog!
Here is a short list of books I got last week:
Glow by Jessica Maria Tuccelli. This looks like it is going to be really good. Amazon describes it as "A breathtaking Georgia-mountain epic about the complex bond of mothers and daughters across a century." Wow.
This could be a pick for the Southern Literature Reading Challenge, once I finally get my sign up post up.
Thanks go to intrepid book publicist, Mary Bisbee-Beek, for getting me an early copy of Glow.
Mary also got me a copy of Midnight Sun, Arctic Moon: Exploring the Wild Heart of Alaska by Mary Albanes (see trailer here).
This one has huge appeal for me right now because I am in Anchorage this week, where it is 0 degrees, snowing, and there is no "midnight sun" because there is really no sun at all -- 3 hours in midday, but with the snow, it's hard to see.
The Devil's Elixir by Raymond Khoury. This looks like a real rip-roarer. Pure fun.
