The Week Ahead: September 22 – 28, 2008

Yay!  You found me!  I moved SheIsTooFondOfBooks to a self-hosted site over the weekend, and left breadcrumbs for everyone to find me … I’m glad you’re here!  I’ll be busy updating links and putting the finishing touches on the new site this week.  It looks much like the old site, but I’ll have a bit more flexibility now.  I’ve been bold and e-mailed a few of my fellow book bloggers asking them to update links to my blog on theirs.  If you remember that you’ve linked to SheIsTooFondOfBooks (old site), would you consider updating the link to reflect the new site – thanks!

Monday 9/22 – I’m getting the package wrapped to mail to Melanie, winner of my BBAW House & Home giveaway package.  I like to avoid the Post Office on Mondays, so this will go in the mail tomorrow.  Congratulations, Melanie!

Tuesday 9/23 – Tuesday Thingers today!  You know the drill – the Boston Bibliophile asks, we answer, and I learn more about LibraryThing each week :)


Also, I’m heading into the Harvard Book Store tonight to see David Ebershoff.  He’ll be reading from his novel The 19th Wife and having a discussion about the book.  I’m especially excited to meet David, as I’ll be hosting him via TLC Book Tours next month!

Wednesday 9/24 – Check back to read this week’s Spotlight on Bookstores, about Tattered Cover Books in Denver.  This was written by Ti of Book Chatter and Other Stuff; I’m ready to hop a plane and shop!

My neighborhood book group meets tonight after taking the summer off.  We have two books to discuss, The Big House by George Howe Colt and Out Stealing Horses by Per Petterson.

Also tonight, Book Club Girl hosts an interview with Ann Patchett, discussing her novel Run.  If you’ve read the book, head over to Book Club Girl’s blog to get the details of how you can call in to ask your questions directly to the author!

Thursday 9/25 – Today I’ll be participating in the online discussion of Run hosted by Gayle at Everyday I Write the Book.  Read Gayle’s blog to get several bloggers insight into this novel.

Friday 9/26 - There’s nothing “bookish” on my calendar; however, I have several pending reviews I’d like to get posted this week.  I’ve been playing “catch up” since the move to the new site, so I’ll probably be saying TGIF and buckling down to check more items off my “to do” list!

What’s going on with you this week?  Have you read any of the books I mention here?  This week especially, SheIsTooFondOfBooks is “too fond of comments”, so please leave a note and let me know you found the new place!
