  1. I have a couple of these, but not the Hera book, which looks great! I hope that you enjoy them all and I look forward to hearing your thoughts on Bezilla Grove. I hear that's an excellent book, and I am excited about reading it!

  3. As much as I'd like to say I'm reading something intellectually stimulating... I have to admit I'm reading people magazine ;)

  4. I absolutley loved The Elegance of the Hedgehog. Hated the ending (not because it wasn't a good ending story-wise, but because I just, personally, didn't want it to end that way). It is a terrific book.

    Here's my Monday: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2010/12/its-monday-what-are-you-reading_13.html

  5. The Georgette Heyer romances are every bit as good as her mysteries. I'm not big on romances, but when I read them I like them to be well-researched historical romances. Heyer's fit the bill perfectly. My favorite is Arabella.

  8. Loved Elegance of the Hedgehog...made me chuckle to see the view of the world through the two main character's eyes. Loved the ending too..I like it when books do something daring.

  9. Hate when I see a typo just as I press "Post Comment"! Characters' eyes. (Is that even right?)

  10. I received for review The Job by Craig Davis from the author.

    Joe B. enjoys the sweet life as a vice president at a huge conglomerate, Universal Whirligig. But along with the Big Boss' favor, he has also gained the notice of a bitter human resources manager, Luci Fernandez. Hateful of any success but her own, Luci manages to get him demoted to the mail room! A rollicking comedy of errors follows as Joe B. tries to figure out what's happened to him, and attempts to get a meeting with the Big Boss. Joe B.'s great expectations have taken a dickens of a twist. His family is forced to make a series of hard adjustments, and he gets only lame comforts from a string of the worst friends anyone could have. Will he finally track down the cause of his frustrations? Or will he only learn a lesson about what it is to be the boss, and that what is apparent is often only a shadow of a greater ongoing good? "The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to Have Happened Somewhere) is a modern parable of ancient troubles and truths.

  11. Lisa -- too funny! I hate when I do that, too!

    Tribute Books Mama -- Sounds like a good book - demoted from VP to the mailroom in a Dickens kind of way? Sounds like something that will get you going and laughing! Thanks for stopping by!

  14. Hmmm, Looking for Salvation at the Dairy Queen sounds like the story of my life :-)

    I've read The Elegance of the Hedgehog. It's good, but a bit heavy in places. I'm re-reading it in 2011 for one of the reading challenges I'm pursuing.

    Have a great week.

  18. I am hoping Santa brings me a giftcard so I can get both Susan Gregg Gilmore books. They have been on my wish list for a long time. Enjoy!

  19. Hedgehog was not my favorite book, but was at the same time one I am glad I read, if that makes sense. It is very different from most books I have read and has some gorgeous imagery, although sometimes there are pages of philosophy that made me go cross-eyed. Hope you enjoy it though!

  20. Oh I really want to read that Improper Life of Bezilla book - I hope you like it!
