I want to recommend a wonderful blog for readers: FOR THE LOVE: http://forthelove-mb.blogspot.com/ Melissa, lawyer, homemaker, and avid reader lists her favorites for 2010.
I love that she said: "I've read by the pool, at the gym, in bed at night and in the hammock in the yard. I read the books I wanted to read. Not the book that would make me look like a cultured smarty-pants to passers-by at the hotel pool or the latest novel to receive a glowing review from the New York Times so I could chat about it at a cocktail party. (We've all done this, right?)"
A book is an investment of time. And that's all we have. How do you choose a book? Where do you like to read?

The excellent publishing blog: BOXING THE OCTOPUS posted a #BuyThisBook blog and the book they chose was The Scandalous Summer of Sissy LeBlanc. http://www.boxocto.com/2010/12/buythisbook-scandalous-summer-of-sissy.html
What intelligent readers. I added a new quote to the Southern Belle's Handbook:
"Writing is easy. Only writing well is hard."
