July Newsletter!

Posted by Elizabeth on July 7, 2009
In this month’s newsletter we interviewed authors Alice Hoffman and Chris Anderson, both of whom had plenty to talk about (see my previous post). We also had a lot of fun with our “In Bed” feature. Instead of getting “In Bed,” we went to the beach with Chick Lit writers Sophie Kinsella and Gigi Levangie Grazer, both of whom provided some wonderfully superficial beach read recommendations. Riders by Jilly Cooper sounds like pure indulgence and I’ve read The End Of Affair by Graham Greene, which is probably one of my favorite books of all time. Green’s subtlety is impressive.

We also featured several interesting books on the Movers & Shakers list. I’m looking forward to reading Something Missing: A Novel, by Matthew Dicks, a book about a thief with OCD tendencies. It sounds clever. And the Lit for Lat selection, Censoring an Iranian Love Story, seems timely and particularly poignant given the events of this past month.

For our Poem of the Month, we had to go with the second place poem “The Rape of Lake Michigan,” because the first place winner, “Used Books,” had already been featured as our September 2008 Poem of the Month. Both are wonderful poems, so please check them out!

We hope you enjoy the newsletter,

Cheers,
Elizabeth

Yeah I get that all the time at Barnes and Noble. Even some of our Booksellers make that mistake.

Yes Carol, Go to the top of the page and where it says "Hi Carol" click that and then click my account. It will ask you to for your password again. Then on the right side of the page you will see listed your email and under that it will say "edit email"

And that is all there is to it.

Novin I haven't received this month's newspaper in my e-mail yet. And I have checked my spam as well... :(


message 27: by Elizabeth (new)

Elizabeth Hi Marius,
What sort of audiobook references are you interested in?
Cheers
E


message 28: by Marius (new)

Marius van Blerck Hi Elizabeth - Perhaps a selection of an "Audiobook of the month". I'd be happy to make suggestions, and the other members of the group will doubtlessly chip in. Whoever prevails should have the punishment of having to draft a short review for you, which must deal with the quality of the narrative as well. What do you think? - Marius


message 29: by Farzan (new)

Farzan Hi Elizabeth :
would you introduce the other books of Sophie Kinsella ?
I've read just " can you keep a secret ? " from her .
