A rec from a friend

Hello all!

As you can see, I’m taking my sweet time in between books. I used to spend hours reading, and for days upon days, but I’ve become such a NetFlixer that I find myself forgetting the beautiful pages of yesteryear.

During my absence I would love to show you a review from a new friend. Yea for Twitter and other networking sites and how you meet interesting new people! Meet Jamila (@MsChicGeek) of Girl Gone Geek. She is eight levels of awesome.

She has recently started a series on her blog called “Book Crush” where she will share her favorites books. The series begins with “The Absolutly True Diary of a Part Time Indian” by Sherman Alexie. I have heard of this author but have never read their books; this review makes me want to change that.

Hop on over to her wonderfully funny blog and check out the review!

Books to read

Here are a few books I have already found intriguing by other CBR reviews:

The Magicians, by Lev Grossman (http://timesucker.blogspot.com/2009/11/cannonball-read-ii-1-what-happens-after.html)

The Keep, by Jennifer Egan (http://pinkymcladybits.blogspot.com/2011/01/cbriii-book1-keep-by-jennifer-egan.html)

God’s Big Picture: Tracing the Story-Line of the Bible, by Vaughan Roberts (http://bookbloggyblogg.wordpress.com/2010/12/02/cannonball-1-gods-big-picture-tracing-the-story-line-of-the-bible-by-vaughan-roberts/)

I’ve got a small stack of books at home that I bought last year, to which I never got around – oi – so I will most likely start there.
