BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?



Did you know that the Pulitzer Prize wasn't given out in 1974 and 1977? Imagine the discussions around that judges table where they make that decision. That would take some guts. Especially when you see some of the books that were nominated that year. Michelle has a little poll going on over at 1morechapter where you can have your say amongst the books that were published that year. Go on over, everyone loves a little poll.

I am still taking suggestions here for a book you buy that you forgot you already read/own. I know there are readers out there who have done this already, so what can you call this? The suggestions stay open until Wednesday, when Suey will put a poll up at her site. Then you can go vote again. Ticky boxes, woo hoo!

In reading:
I just landed in England and it is 1949 after the war. I am a doctor who is fascinated by a local mansion that is falling apart. (The Little Stranger by Sarah Waters)

Where is reading taking you? Leave a comment, write a post, spread the word.

I've just left Minnesota. I was on a camping trip in a Graphic novel titled "Lost." I've been down the Boundary Lakes. It was soooo exciting.

Jealous of where you are right now! In about twelve hours that's where I will be too. (The Little Stranger is my airplane book.)

I love Sarah Waters, I'm not allowing myself to buy this till the summer holidays when I can lay in the sun and enjoy it.
I'm in an unnamed city where blindness has became infectious. (Blindness by Jose Saramago)

I'm hoping to read The Little Stranger sometime soon. I really like Waters!

Hmmm, I guess I'm in the U.S. I'm reading In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan. It's very good and very readable!
