  1. We've posted this at Win A Book.

  2. I'm looking forward to your review of Guernica

  3. I'm interested in your review of "Bel Canto" by Ann Patchtt. I have not read this book yet I have read her latest "Run" and loved it.
    It seems that many who had read Bel Canto did not like Run as well as those that read Run for their first book by her. Have you read Run?
    BTW, I'd enjoy the book you are giving away!
    Thank you

  4. kaye: By the time this giveaway is over my review of Guernica should be posted. Stay tuned.

  5. darbyscloset: Thank you so much for asking. The only thing I like as much as reading books is talking about them.
    I loved Bel Canto, I mean it was one of my favourites the year it came out and I read 300 books that year. I will put together a review just for you. Stay tuned.

  6. Hi Sandra - thanks for the heads up. I'll be looking forward to your Guernica review after the contest.
