Book nerd alert, nerd alert! The ultimate book obsessed, library fanatic opportunity just dropped in my lap: I got to participate in the inaugural Book Club over at BlogHer! BlogHer has partnered with Penguin Group USA to bring new and fabulous books to BlogHer Network bloggers to read, review and share with you, our devoted readers.
I had the pleasure of receiving a free galley copy of the book, Caleb's Crossing by Geraldine Brooks, reading it in a quick three days, then turning around and reviewing it for publication over at the brand spanking new BlogHer Book Club page, and I get paid a bit just to read and review, even if I hate the book. Um, ok! So go read my review, they just posted it yesterday. (Hint hint- I loved it.)
The BlogHer Book Club will be active on a monthly basis and I hope to have the chance to do it again soon. It took me back to my college days, reading the classics, aggressive class discussions, underlining my favorite lines, sweating over writing papers, wrinkled brow analysis of story line and character development, plus it was just sheer fun. Go ahead and pre-order the book, totally worth it! Now, go read my review and comment if you like it, but only if you like it!
