Hi,

Was wondering if you'd be interested in reviewing my new novel and posting your comments here as well as a few other book-related sites. Saw you liked Paris Trout, and thought you might like my novel since it's also southern and a bit dark (in the same vein as Paris Trout). I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like. Let me know if you're interested. Here's a link to a summary in case you're interested:

Thanks,

Well, if you liked The Blind Side, you should like Moneyball, even though it does get a bit technical at some points. I used to be an agent for professional baseball players, so I was fascinated by it. Just the other day, I also read Lewis' small book entitled "Coach." Very, very good and you can get through it in about an hour! I see you've got a couple of Raymond Carver's books on your list as well....I think that, 50 years from now, college literature courses will be teaching Carver like they now teach Hemingway. Also, as a resident of Boston, I'm surprised you haven't read "Common Ground" by J. Anthony Lukas...it's one of my top-5 all-time favorite non-fiction books!
Well, if I'm being completely honest, I'm actually still reading Moneyball. I don't get nearly enough time to read, so a book that used to take two or three days now takes a month or more. Oh well. I LOVED "The Blind Side," though -- he's a great author, and Football is such a complex and fascinating game (yay for TiVo, or I'd never get to watch it anymore).
