If you have noticed some oddities with the site, you would be correct. I am trying to learn web design (my web designer left), and I have managed to hit a couple of wrong buttons (yes, I know last month’s list was out of order, and I am learning how to prevent that from happening in the future). I know that I have not e-mailed the subscription list for the past couple of months, and trust that I am working on the problems. If you know a lot about web design and would like to volunteer to help me out, your expertise is most welcome.
I spent almost all of August on the road, so I devoured a lot of books in airport terminals and on flights. Got through a ton of hilarious page turners by Janet Evanovich (author of the Stephanie Plum bounty hunter mysteries), read several inspirational biographies (including Lead to Succeed by basketball coach Rick Pitino – yes, I read a lot of basketball books this past month…I guess I was excited about the Redeem Team at the Olympics) and experimented with several romance novels (sorry – they still do not do anything for me, although I do enjoy some chick lit…see my review of How to Hook a Hottie below). Here’s a longer book filled with short stories that I’d highly recommend, Hearts of Fire by Kemp Battle, which includes all sorts of wonderful anecdotes about great women throughout American history.
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 September, and enjoy your books!
