I wish a most happy and blessed Easter to everyone who celebrates it! Likewise, a belated Happy Passover to all who celebrate that holy day. And may spring — the actual weather season, not the official designation — please come soon!
The big book news this week — for me, anyway — is the announcement that Amazon is buying Goodreads. I thought about posting about this in my Sunday Post, but decided I needed more room. In the end, I wrote two posts, one news-and-commentary, and the other an open letter to Goodreads (which I’ve also sent via email.) Look, I know many people are upset about this move, but I really hope everyone will take a deep breath, calm down, discuss it rationally and factually, and wait to see what happens before deleting their Goodreads accounts or loudly predicting the end of the (social reading) world.
The past week on the blog:
- Tues., 3/26: Top Ten Tuesday: The Books I Recommend The Most
- Wed, 3/27: Etiquette & Espionage, by Gail Carriger (review)
The coming week:
- Tues. 4/02: Top Ten Tuesday: Characters I Would Crush On If I Were A Fictional Character
- Review of Oz Reimagined and an advance review of The Sweetest Dark
- Sat. 4/06: News & Notes
Sadly, I can’t claim to have done terribly well. I did get about four books read from my TBR pile, but not the stacks I had been hoping to read. I’ll have to try again some other month. This past week, I had to set aside plans to read Scarlet in order to finish a review copy of Oz Reimagined by the end of March.
I was so excited when I was approved for the new Maggie Hope mystery, I almost jumped up and down! The Sabrina Jeffries romance is a novella previously published in an anthology, but I hadn’t read it, so I’m looking forward to it, too.
Bought for my eReader:
Can’t wait to read the new Robyn Carr! (Just as soon as I get through some of these ARCs and nearly-due library books…)
