This Week's Recommendations (#7, if you're keeping track)

I only have 22 this week.  I don't think I'm legally, morally, or ethically bound to post 25. Am I?  Well, I finally got caught up, so I don't think I'll have 25 in a week any more.  I also want to mention that if you see a book twice, it just means that more than one blogger raved about the book.  That obviously gives the book even greater cachet.

Without further blather, here they are.

Confession:  Yes, I know I promised the next 2 mini-reviews in a "day or 3."  Today is the 3rd day, and, no, I don't have them ready yet.  Soon?  Of course.


  1. I enjoy reading through these lists and am glad to see Erika Robuck's CALL ME ZELDA -- I loved it.

  2. Uh, oh, looks like I'll have to put that one on the queue!
