Good morning, all!
I've been trying to find new ways to "spice up" my blog, such as the new template, and decided that I would try something that I've seen other bloggers do. For the next week, you will all get a chance to vote on one book for me to read next month. These choices all come from that massive list of recommendations that I got last week from some pretty awesome bloggers. There was no favoritism here; I simply chose the books that were available in my library (and I was disappointed to find that many of my first choices weren't there). There are four choices and you can only pick one. Whichever one gets the highest vote wins.
The poll will be up later today on the top right-hand side of my blog. For now, peruse the titles and see which one you like best. All links are to the GoodReads page.
1) The Power of One by Bryce Courtenay
2) The Book Thief by Markus Zusak
3) Field of Blood by Denise Mina
4) Anil's Ghost by Michael Ondaatje
If this goes well, I may end up doing it as a monthly or every-other-month kind of thing.
