  • That was a WONDERFUL post. I loved the idea of "Brother Books", that sounds like a perfect life. I've had Room on my to-read list since I heard about it, & now I'm even more excited to read it! Your narrative voice is very nice, & you didn't give too much away. I've added you to my favorites list, Anna, & I'm psyched for your next post! My name is Kathryn, btw, feel free to PM or friend me

  • This reminds me of the blog a person on another social networking site has, same place too... she adds in actual videoblogs on her site of the books she has read... try joining one of those curcles that help draw in more readers?

    Ohh... I bet a local book club would be cool and you all share about what was read would be interesting too.. and give other perspectives and insite

  • I have to admit, I really had no clue what the blog title "Books 4 Dinner" meant. At first I thought you meant books to read at dinner, but... I guess you mean you love them so much you "eat" them? I have read "Room," but you may want to provide a "spoiler alert" for anyone who hasn't? One of the great things about that book is that the reader only knows as much as the narrator. Going into it knowing that they're being held captive and planning an escape kind of changes it.
