Noticed you liked Lovely Bones, and I 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. Thought you might like my book since it also contains a young female narrator struggling with a series of tragic circumstances. I could e-mail you the novel in an e-book format if you'd like (I'm out of physical copies at the moment). Here's a link to a summary (and a sample chapter) in case you'd like to read more about the book before you commit:


We're thinking about it, believe me.
I *loved* The Book Thief. Highly recommended!! I need to update this thing. . .much reading has gone on since my last update! :)
I *loved* Eats, Shoots, and Leaves :) And I gave out 2 copies of Special Topics in Calamity Physics for Xmas. I have a book on my desk to send to you- not going to spoil the surprise by telling you the title, but I hope you'll like it. And, unlike most others I've given you, it's not depressing! Hope everything is going well!
Hi jayceebee, I'm glad you joined the discussion! Cheers,d
PS - Great picture!
From your review "I like Olive. Again, she's "real." But, I've noticed almost all the women in the book are kind of mean! All of the men who are significant characters are kind. I wonder why Strout is so sympathetic towards the men."

Funny observation. I might have replaced "kind" with "clueless". ;)

fyi - There is a discussion in Talk here. There are spoilers there, so wait until after you finish before looking.
thanks for the suggestion. that book is on my "books i want to read" list, but i had kind of forgotten about it. i will have to move it up closer to the top. lately nothing i read interests me for long! i hope the dry spell ends soon. feel free to stop by with your recommendations anytime!
Well, I started it (Charlotte Simmons), maybe I'll finish it one day. From your remarks I'm now more intrigued about Charlotte herself, so maybe I'll drag it off the shelf sooner than I expected. The reason I put it down months ago was that I didn't find it as compelling as Bonfire of the Vanities or a Man in Full. I'm not sure why.
It's nice to know someone thinks my library is interesting, so thank you. How are you liking Charlotte Simmons?
Hi, thanks for your comment. We do have a lot of books in common. I just finished Anne Tyler's Digging To America, and am about to start The Liar's Club by Mary Karr. What are you reading? Also, I don't know the rest of the conversation between you and Ritaleh, but I really like Whitman.
Hi! I just got your comment. Thanks. I'm about to add a bunch more books to my list so maybe we'll have even more in common. I'll definitely check out what you've got for some more ideas :)
thanks for stopping by. we also have in common that we both live in nc. i used to live in raleigh. i love the titles of your recently read books. let me know if they were as delightful as they sound. :)
I see your point: Whitman and Brahms. That's better than my Wordsworth and Brahms. In my book, Wordsworth is great, but Whitman is greater. Brahms is no slouch either.
I was making good use of summer vacation :) I have yet to catch up on my reading, but at least I'm organized!! Thanks for introducing me to this thing- I love it!
