Step right up. Post a link to your best book review or your thoughts on reading a particular book for this week. Mine is the first one on the list, Sights Unseen by Kaye Gibbons. Put the name of the book or an abbreviated title, not more than four words, in parentheses after your name. All books are welcome, new books, old books, classics, children’s literature, YA fiction, adult novels, nonfiction, even poetry and biography.

After you’ve posted a link to your review, check out the other reviewers for the week and find some books to add to your list. So many books, so little time.

I'm a Christian, the homeschooling mom of eight (yes, all mine) children, married to a NASA engineer, and a confirmed bookaholic. I like old books, conservative politics, and new and interesting ideas. My hair is grey, my favorite clothes are red, and I love purple. Come on in and enjoy the blog. Be sure to tell me what you think before you leave.

  1. OK, I’m in (even though technically it’s still Friday night here in California). This is a neat idea. Thanks for sharing! I hope that tons of people lilnk in.

  2. Thanks for doing this, Sherry. It’s great encouragement to me to actually finish a book – and to think about it after I’ve finished it.

  3. I’ve added 2 of my children’s links below my own – hope you don’t mind children participating as well.

  4. Forgot to put my book title in. Oops. And I had to bend the rules a bit a link to a picture book from last week, because I didn’t want to promote the book I reviewed this week.

  5. ‘morning, Sherry. ‘almost forgot about this party. I linked to this week’s post about Hirshman — the last of my ramblings on her decidedly uneven and ill-advised “manifesto.”

    Best regards.

  6. Posted a review of a light read, “Confessions of Super Mom”.

    For next week, is it okay to post about a book we’re reading even if it’s actually a “review”?

  7. Hi Sherry,

    I’m plodding along. Don’t know if I’ll get mine up until later on this evening, but I’m working on it in between Saturday chores.

  8. OK, my review of Les Miserables is “miserable”, but I posted it anyway! Next week I’ll start earlier. I shall visit all these but maybe not until tomorrow! Until then. . .

  9. Oops, forgot to put the title next to my name! Ah, well. I’m trying to be better about writing book reviews–usually I’m just too lazy. This sort of thing helps. And helps me find great blogs about books! Thanks.

  10. This is great! I’m glad to participate and can’t wait to read all your other reviews. I posted about a book I started out not liking but by the middle of it I was totally hooked and couldn’t put it down. I am going to keep this author in mind.

  11. Due to an overzealous spam filter I didn’t see your comment until today. In the auto-link I just put my name and URL. There are a number of reviews and an interview up on the main page currently. Enjoy.

  12. Very cool idea. Except all my books are being packed up in boxes for a big move. I’ll have to dig something out …
