Well, I had seen on Oprah’s Book Club that this book (left) was being added to the “list.” I have to be honest, all of the books that I’ve read off of the list (The Five People You Meet in Heaven, White Oleander, Love in the Time of Cholera) have been WONDERFUL! I’ve ordered I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou, and that’s on the list… already I’m hearing that I will love that book.
Imagine, robotic sound in my head:
“You must buy this book today. Buy this book. Do not wait. Press the buttons… yes, Amazon.com has free shipping… so, it’s less expensive. Go.”
God, I hate that ROBOTIC, all-consuming, won’t-leave-it-alone voice! It’s a done deal. It’s ordered. Now, I don’t want to know too much about this book so that I have little expectations going into to… but, I can assure you that Book Room Review’s Posting on this is what you want to read if you are at all curious about this book. Heck, she got me to buy it instantly. Oh Lord, help me… I’m weak.
Now to the rest of you Bloggers… Yes, YOU!
I’ve seen a’many of you Bloggers with this adorable little face (to your right, yes, that furry one with those eyes!) on your blog sites. I have three, (yes, I know), ah-hemmm… three cats at home. All adopted… all loved (well, one is a pain). In any event, I had an orange (maybe butterscotch) and white tabby who passed away two years ago. Mako was the LOVE of my life. He was there for me in ways that no human could have been during such a very difficult time.
Anyway, there’s that face…. staring at me. ROBOTIC voice enters….
“Sher, you must buy this one, too. Ignore the other 10 books you just ordered, this one needs to be read by you. ORDER now. Look, Amazon.Com gives free shipping when you spend $25… and the Edgar Book is only $14… This would give you free shipping and save you $5. NOW! Push the button, Sher.”
And, so it was said… and, so was it done. I’ve glanced at the topic of this book and I hope to enjoy it. I know many of you have read it and reviewed it. I can’t wait to get this under my belt and cross link it to your reviews. This is ALL YOUR FAULT!
Holy Moly. Now, do I add these books to the list of my Fall Into Reading 2008 Challenge? Yes, I think so. I know they’ll make their way up there in the pile.
How do y’all stay faithful to the order of books TBR in your pile? Do you manipulate them… move them around… give some new ones priority over old ones? What if you are a Book Tour Host… you have dates that you must respond to… those have to be priority… yes?
Speaking of Book Tours… goal has been achieved… I’m doing my first review on a book tour in October. Yippee! I so want to do my best job on that one!
Well, I should be reading and NOT writing…off to the patio for a glass of iced tea and The Gargoyle.
