Spending what I don't have

I have not been shopping, just spending far more time than I can afford on silly wanderings around the internet.  It is time to get back to writing and reading.  (I am finally reading The Book Thief, at the moment.  You should be, too, if you have not yet done so!)  I heard (read) about The Book Thief over on Joshilyn Jackson's blog, put it on my Christmas list and am finally getting around to reading it!

I am already taking a break from the things that I should be doing, however, to tell you about another great book that I have not yet read.  Another book that I have found via Joshilyn Jackson's blog, as a matter of fact.  I want to read it.  You will want to read it.  So I am telling you about it for two reasons:

1.  Pure selfishness.  I want to read this book.  Joshilyn Jackson is picking four lucky winners to receive a free copy of American Rose. If I post the link here, and then comment over there, I am eligible for the drawing. 
2.  You will want to read this book. Go on over to Joshilyn's page and leave a comment yourself.  Maybe you will win!  (And maybe you will loan me the book, when you're done.) ;)

On your recommendation, I have placed a hold on The Book Thief at the library. Now all I have to do is read it... :)

The Book Thief is one of the best books I have ever read. I definitly recommend reading it to anybody and everybody.

Enjoy The Book Thief! I read it for my book club a few years ago, and it was really good. The voice was so intriguing.

How funny - I saw your name on there, too, and I thought that might be you! It was fun to see a name on there and think, "Hey, I know who that is!"
