Book Blogger Hop

I must take my hat off to Jennifer at Crazy for Books for hosting the Book Blogger Hop. If you are new to this meme, now's your chance to discover all the varied book blogs that are out there. Oh the places you will go! You'll find YA, mystery, classics, historical romance, chicklit and if you like your books with a little bite, there are the paranormals! All genres are brilliantly represented, simply follow the link to enter your info and join in the fun. I am number 299 this week! You are bound to find a blog or two or 299 that you will enjoy!

This week's question: How many blogs do you follow? Contributed by Librarys Cat Blog List.

My answer: OMG - about 109 - I'm astounded I follow so many blogs! BUT, after doing a brief and thoroughly unscientific survey, it seems like there are a few people that follow 300-400 blogs! Wowzer!

And on another note!

Last month I won a contest sponsored by
Cheryl at CMash Loves to Read. Can I just tell you how excited I was, I really was! About two weeks ago the book arrived at my doorstep delivered by a very gorgeous UPS guy I might add! And here it is...

The Imposter's Daughter is a memoir by Laurie Sandell a contributing editor at Glamour magazine. She asks: if the man whose identity is the basis of my own is a fraud, then who am I? What I didn't realize was that this is a graphic memoir, an intriguing way to tell her amazing story.

A heap of praise:

Sandell's wit shines through her clever illustrations and honest prose. ( USA Today)

An eloquent graphic novel. (Time )

The Impostor's Daughter is funny, frank, and absolutely engaging. It's about truth and consequences and families and men and women and fame and, well, life itself. It's wonderful. (Susan Orlean, author of The Orchid Thief )

I can only say the gato and I are looking forward to a great read!

Enjoy the weekend everyone.

    Also, you are now the second or third person to put in a plug for Colin Firth so I may have to give that rendition a try before I decide once and for all that Austen isn't meant for the screen. :)
