Lord of Scoundrels, The Male Perspective...

Oct 7, 2008 by

Wouldn’t it be great if there were more men who admitted they read romance novels? And wouldn’t it be even better if they reviewed romance in general? If only there were more blogs or review sites where men reviewed romance! Luckily for us, I may just have your answer. Last fall, my friend Ryan I were talking about books. Ryan loves to read as I do and he knows of my love for romance books in general. I told him of All About Romance’s Top 100 Romances of All Time poll. He was really interesting in how this poll came about and which books were considered the best of the best in romance. He was especially interested in the number one book, Lord of Scoundrels by Loretta Chase. He wanted to read Lord of...

I Want to Be Tina Fey

Oct 6, 2008 by

Because of this:From Publishersweekly.comA Little, Brown official this morning confirmed that the house will publish Tina Fey’s book, concluding a beauty contest believed to include Ecco and two other houses. Richard Abate at Endeavor handled negotiations for the project, said to skew more toward humor than memoir; though it’s unclear what the final price tag ended up being, Wednesday’s New York Post reported that offers were approaching $6 million. **better yet, can she adopt me??** Publishers were clearly smitten with Fey, whose recent Emmy win and “Saturday Night Live” Sarah Palin imitations have ratcheted up her profile; other houses expressed early interest in the project despite Abate’s no-meeting, no-proposal pitch, but one such publisher at a Random House imprint who didn’t bid said that the price tag just became untenable. Rumor had it Fey...

Oct 5, 2008 by

Alison Morris who has an on-line column called Wall Scrawl for Publishers Weekly has posted an interesting question: “Poor, poor you! You’re a literary orphan with no parents to call your own. What fictional family would you like to have adopt you?” If you had your choice of any family from literature to be you parents and siblings, who would you choose? Mine was a tie between the Ingalls from the Little House on the Prairie series by Laura Ingalls Wilder or Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew from L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green Gables...

My Experience With Banned Books...

Oct 3, 2008 by

“It’s not just the books under fire now that worry me. It is the books that will never be written. The books that will never be read. And all due to the fear of censorship. As always, young readers will be the real losers.” — Judy Blume I was tagged by Ciaralira to post the banned books I have read from the ALA’a list of 100 most frequently challenged books from 1990-2000. But before I show my list, I wanted to share a personal story where I was almost censored in my reading. I consider myself to be very lucky, because when I was growing up, my parents encouraged me to read regardless of the book I would pick, and they never censored my reading material. I have to admit that I had the...

Anyone want to join me? *G* If you had a chance to go to Comic Con, what superheroes or comic books characters would you want to meet? Would you wear a...
