Around The Blogosphere
Are you participating in NaNoWriMo? If so, some great bloggers have gotten together to start a Writers Unite! Support Group for those of you out there who would like the extra help/motivation/camaraderie.

If you happen to be a reader who's also trying to learn a foreign language, Khazumoto wrote a great little motivational article for people attempting to read a book in their target language that I encourage you to check out.

The Ho-Ho-Ho Readathon will be starting next week on Thursday, November 7th and will run until Monday the 11th. Have you signed up yet?

Also, for those of you who could use the extra nudge in making progress with your electronic TBR list, the Clean Out Your E-Reader Challenge will be having its kick-off this Friday, and will run throughout the entire month of November.

Coming Out This Week
What's New On My Bookshelf

A great big thanks to Emily Bestler Books, an imprint of Atria Books at Simon & Schuster, for sending me this beautiful hardcover edition of Bellman & Black by Diane Setterfield - I can't wait to start reading it!


Sisters In Love and Six Moon Summer were both Amazon freebies that I added to my Kindle this past week. The Enchanted Life of Adam Hope was more of a splurge, which I had to get for my Kindle after hearing about it on an episode of the Books on the Nightstand podcast. Lastly, I received a copy of Northern Bites to review for an upcoming book tour.


Thank you for stopping by! Your comments are truly appreciated, and I always try to respond to each of you at your own blogs. Have an awesome day! :)
