BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?

It's my day to host the Virtual Blog tour today - have fun! Lots of fun Christmas and Holiday stuff going on. I got my Holiday Swap package yesterday! The lovely Tanabata from inspringitisthedawn sent me, all the way from Japan, the third mystery that has been translated by Miyuki Miyabe, called Crossfire. I've read two of her other books and really liked them. To get the Japanese book all the way from Japan is just too cool. She also included a set of bookmarks and the sweetest Christmas card with a Japanese scene. It's quite lovely. Thank you very much.

There is voting going on at Sueys for the latest Bookword. Head on over and vote for what to call a bad-covered book. Voting lasts til Wednesday and it's pretty close right now.

In reading, I am in New Brunswick (just over the Northumberland Strait from the real me), then called Nova Scotia, in 1775. My name is Charlotte Taylor and I've run away from my family in England with our butler, and I am called the first woman settler of the Miramichi. (The Nine Live of Charlotte Taylor, by Sally Armstrong)

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

I am in the Missouri/Kansas area of the US during the Civil War period. The times are very difficult for one particular farm family.

Your book sounds great! I like the New Brunswick setting and the premise.

I'm playing today here.

I look forward to reading your holiday post! I've been having problems with my internet service the last several days and so haven't had a chance to visit many others yet. I'll be playing catch up this weekend, I think.

Your Holiday Swap gifts sound wonderful--perfect bookish gifts. :-)

My reading has taken me all over the place recently. I've been spending some time in Iran as well as South Carolina. I plan to visit Boston soon.

I hope you are having a great week!
