My ladies what lunch haven’t had an airing for a while so I have let them loose today to gossip about all things bookish and on the horizon at The Book Whisperer.
The First Literary Blog Hop
This was hosted by Judith at Leeswammes and was a great success. Thirty blogs simultaniously participated in giving away books and I have a feeling that there will be a lot more wanting to contribute next time. Here at The Book Whisperer I offered a choice of 3 books and the winner was Andrea from GA in the USA and she chose East Lynne by Ellen Wood. I hope you enjoy, Andrea!
World Book Night
The first ever world book night will be here in the UK on Saturday 5th March and I will be taking part. I will have 48 copies of Life of Pi by Yann Martel (one of my favourite books) to distribute so if you live in Wakefield in West Yorkshire – look out; you could be one of the lucky ones! My plan is to wrap the books up and post them through random letter boxes in the area with a note. It will be like Christmas!
I also plan to give a couple of copies away on my blog, so watch out for details of that coming up.
Are you involved in World Book Night? What plans do you have?
I have a couple of very exciting author interviews on their way soon:
Sophie Hannah who is the author of the psychological thriller series of books such as Little Face, A Room Swept White and her latest (and brilliant) book Lasting Damage will be answering questions this week and this will be posted after my review of the book.
On Tuesday I will be speaking to Kim Edwards, author of The Memory Keepers Daughter and her latest book, The Lake of Dreams (which I am currently reading and really enjoying).
Both authors are ones I love and admire so watch out for the upcoming book reviews and author interviews.
New Kid on the Block
My lovely friend Kirsty, who I know through a Goodreads group and have also met twice in real life, has just started her own book blog called Blatant Biblioholic. It would be great if you could pop over there and give her some support. She reads lots of genres of books and writes great reviews so go over and get to know her 🙂
