GOOD BOOKS FOR YOUR WEEK-END

02/26-27/2011

Spring is not yet here folks, so why not hibernate a bit longer in a good book?

Here is a list of goodies for you, and from now on, I’ll try to give you the link of the blog where I found it first. 2 advantages to that:

1. it will keep the post nice and short, but if the title intrigues you [I’m of the kind who still judges a book by its title!], you can access and read a review right away, just on clicking on the title

2. you can visit some of my favorite book bloggers

-Madame Tussaud: A Novel of the French Revolution, by Michelle Moran. I can’t wait to be home tonight to begin this one!
-The Outline of History, by H.G. Wells
-The Arrow Chest, by Robert Parry
-The Fates Will Find Their Way, by Hannah Pittard
-Silent Night:The Story of the WWI Christmas Truce, by Stanley Weintraub
-The Thirteen Tale, by Diane Setterfield
-Better Than Life, by Daniel Pennac
-The Band that Played On: The Extraordinary Story of the 8 Musicians Who Went Down with the Titanic, by Steve Turner – I requested this on from Booksneeze. Get it for free if you accept to r=write a review of it!

This past week, I have completed my first 2011 Reading Challenge: my own challenge, as I read one book published in each of the 5 first years of my life – a post is coming.

I have cleaned up my old 2010 TBR list and reduced it drastically. I definitely will now read several reviews before I launch into a new book, as I really don’t like my new record of having dumped already 7 books in 2011. I enjoy the Kindle free samples, so that should do the trick. If I don’t like the sample, I just will not borrow the book.

I have also stupidly spent some time trying to figure out how to sync my Facebook Page and Twitter account. My tweets do show on FB, but what I post on my Words and Peace Facebook Page do not show up on Twitter. The FB App seems to be stuck, whatever browser I use.  Oh well…

To end more positively, this week has been especially marked by the listening of The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, an amazingly haunting book by Helen Grant. I see she wrote another one!

SO WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO READ THIS WEEK-END?
