One of the joys of blogging is getting to read books before the majority of people become aware of them. So it's always exciting to get the publisher's emails announcing a great new book and discover that you're already reading it. Such was the case for me a couple of weeks ago when I got Penguin.com's newsletter heralding "Washington: A Life" by Ron Chernow, which I was reading that day.
I see that my favorite indie publisher, Unbridled Books, has two books making waves on the Indie Next List. "Safe From The Sea" by Peter Geye is one of their October Great Reads and "Stranger Here Below" by Joyce Hinnfield (which I just finished) is one of their October Notables. Kudos to Unbridled Books!
I'm starting "Outside The Ordinary World" by Dori Ostermiller for a TLC Book Tour. What are you reading this week?
