This is what I received:
I heard about The Rights of the Reader on one of the many blogs I subscribe to. It’s funny how I can’t remember which one it was but I am forever grateful. Look for a review soon.
I was very lucky to win a copy of Christopher Barzack’s The Love We Share Without Knowing. Nymeth praised this book, so that’s the reason why I’m going to read it.
Without Blood by Alessandro Barrico. I’ve had this book on my wish list at paperbackswap.com for more than a year. Did I mention I’ve been #1 that whole time? So it was unexpected to receive an email telling me that the book was on its way. I plan on reading it for the Lost in Translation challenge.
The Reading Zone by Nancie Atwell. I’m currently reading this and no amount of words can tell you enough how important it is for every adult who regularly interacts with children to read this book. The same goes for The Rights of the Reader.
