It's Monday and I have a giveaway!

So, first up is the good news. Today (Monday) is the last day for you to enter to win a copy of Double Blind, the brand new book from Brandilyn Collins. It's a really suspenseful read and it asks some very interesting questions about the medical industry. Go enter right now and then come back. 

All done? So now the bad news. As I write this, we are hunkering down in anticipation of Hurricane Sandy.  It does not look like it will be fun for those of us on the East coast. Schools and businesses are closed and we are expecting heavy rain and winds and lots of flooding. So if you live on the shoreline or in NY or NJ, please be careful. If you live elsewhere, all of your prayers and good thoughts would be much appreciated!

What are you reading this week? 


  1. My sincere wishes for your safety in the face of the storm!

    Wishing you a great reading week!

  2. I've read a lot of Fitzgerald but not The Last Tycoon. Except for the abundance of CYBILS reading, things are back to normal. My favorite book was How to Wash a Cat by Rebecca M. Hale. Please come see what I'm reading now.

  3. I'm not too far from you - I'm in the lower Hudson Valley and we are hunkered down! I have a stack of books that I wouldn't mind getting to, though!

    Hope you and your family stay safe and that you have a good week!

  4. It's an odd feeling to sit back and watch another part of the world worry about a hurricane. I live along the Texas Gulf Coast and that's pretty much how we spend our summers.

    Hope everyone is safe during this storm.

    Here's my It's Monday! What Are You Reading? I hope you will stop in and say hello.

  5. Sending you lots of positive energy and prayers and to the whole of East Coast. :) A Fitzgerald novel, haven't seen one of those in a looong time. :)

  6. The World Is Bigger Now looks good. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

    Praying for you.

  7. Hope the storm will not affect you! Best wishes.

    Have a good reading week.

  8. Holy cow girl, I want to read ALL of those! If I weren't on a library ban I'd be requesting like a crazy person!

    Stay safe ok!? Hope you're all prepared :)

  9. Hunkering down here in the DC area, but at least we have the day off and power for now... good luck with the storm! Looks like an interesting collection of books.
