About meWe're both book people. One of us embraces web geekery (Jenny) the other is still somewhat in denial about it (Lisa).

About my libraryWe have in the neighborhood of 100 linear feet of books. I think the only room without a bookshelf is the bathroom. It's all pretty organized, because Jenny insisted (she has an MLS, but no, things are not in the LC system) and Lisa humors her.

thank you both SO MUCH for my secret santa books! i've not read anything by either of these writers, and there's nothing i love more than reading something by a new writer, and learning about new books! and they both look WONDERFUL!

thanks again! elizabeth
Noticed you liked The God of Small Things, 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's also about a grief-stricken family. 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 novel before you commit:


... Your review of 'Sticks and Stones' has really made me think about the book in a different light, I think I'll have to re read it with your thoughts in mind to see if I can get more out of it!

I loved your description of the "inept, angry, powerful and greedy blockhead who squelches dissent" :) ..thanks for a great review!
