January Newsletter!

January Newsletter!

We decided to ring in the new year with one of our strongest newsletters yet! This month Goodreads talked about marriage with Elizabeth Gilbert, author of the runaway success Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia, and asked Jasper Fforde, author of Thursday Next series and Nursery Crime series, all about color. Gilbert was as nice as could be and Fforde’s dry wit had us in stitches.

We also asked Joshua Ferris for his favorite on-the-road book recommendations and spoke with debut authorAmy Greene about her home in the Smoky Mountains of Appalachia.

Movers & Shakers covered a variety of topics (time travel, Alice in Wonderland, Anne Boleyn, motivation, and the uber wealthy) and The Literature at Every Latitude book, The German Mujahid, is being heralded as the first novel to address the Holocaust from an Arab perspective.

Finally, please read the winning poem of the month. Birthday on Brokenback Mountain is by Jane Ellen Glasser.

We hope you enjoy the newsletter and best of luck for 2010!

P.S. We’re also proud to announce the winners of the first annual Goodreads Choice Awards. Congratulations everyone!
