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.) ;)
