November 2007

Hi folks!

I want to insert a little promo here for my southern California readers. All Los Angeles-area Barnes & Noble outlets will be donating 10 percent of all purchases from Friday, November 9th to Thursday, November 15th to The Wonder of Reading, an incredible non-profit responsible for creating one in every three school libraries in Los Angeles. For the past seven years I have been training The Wonder of Reading’s adult volunteers who read to struggling young students, and I can assure you that this is a very noble cause. Please shop at Barnes & Noble and make a difference in the lives of so many struggling and reluctant readers.

It is pretty amazing that I was a struggling and reluctant reader until my junior year of college. Now, you will rarely see me without a book (or three). I devour good books of all genres, and I enjoyed many great books this past month, including Natalie MacLean’s hilarious Red, White, and Drunk All Over: A Wine-Soaked Journey from Grape to Glass (not only do you learn about wine; you develop a thorough appreciation for it that goes beyond the palette); Vince Flynn’s Protect and Defend (if you have not read one of Flynn’s thrillers yet, think of a post-9/11 Tom Clancy); Eric Clapton’s excellent Clapton: The Autobiography (wow – that guy has lived 20 lives, and he comes across as a guy you’d love to call your best friend); and Come on People: On the Path from Victims to Victors by Bill Cosby and Alvin F. Poussaint (I always like to read something inspirational).

Anyhow, enjoy this month’s book selections below. I hope you are all reading some wonderful books. Make sure to tell me all about them. If you're an author or a publisher and would like to send me review copies of your book(s), please send them to the address listed for authors and publishers.

Have a wonderful November, and enjoy your books!
