TTBA Weekly News and Mailbox Monday

This feature was inspired by It's Monday! What are you reading? hosted by Sheila at Book Journey and by The Sunday Salon.

Hope everyone had a great week last week! I don't have much to report, except that my family and I got to stay at the Opryland Hotel over the weekend for a Dreamworks Family Fun Night, courtesy of Klout perks.  You can read all about it HERE.  It was great fun and didn't cost us a penny. =O)

Have you checked out my new history blog yet?  It's brand new so there's not much posted over there yet, but my introductory post is about William Wallace.  And the blog design is nice too. ;O)  Stop by and check it out if you get a chance.  The blog is called A Brave Heart.


Just a quick reminder:  Marie and I are hosting a read-a-long of Forever Amber by Kathleen Winsor over at our blog, Historical Fiction Connection.  It runs from March 18 through April 14.  Head over to the blog and read this POST for all the details.  If you haven't signed up yet, we would love for you to join us!

The Color Purple by Alice Walker (for TuesBookTalk)
The Secret History by Donna Tartt

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. Just thought I would pop in and say hi really quickly. Hope everything is going great.

  2. You're reading such an interesting group of books right now! I'm really looking forward to your reviews. I loved The Color Purple and can't wait to see what you think of it!
