Allow me to introduce my “New to me” book blog!
A Little Bookish is run by Carin B and like me she reads quite an ecclectic mix of books! Just take a look at her sidebar to see what she has read in 2010. Her reviews are always thoughtful and I’ve added a tonne of books to my thanks to her! (should it really be thanks? sometimes I wonder ;))
But it isn’t just her ecclectic mix of books I like, she also runs (or co-runs) a bunch of fantastic features on her blog.
First there is Friday Coffee Chat where she asks book related questions and asks her readers to comment on it. One of my favourite topics was Are You a Book Abuser? (answer: yes)
The second feature is Book Around the World or Book Hobo where she has two different books travelling around the world to different bloggers. Carin generously provided two books to travel around the world: Lost on Planet China by J. Maarten Troost (my group) and Enchanted April by Elizabeth von Arnim. When a blogger receives the book they read it 1-2 weeks and then writes a guest post for Carin about where they are from and about the package they received, you see each blogger sends some small local gifts to the next person on the list along with the book. It is such a fantastically fun idea. I can’t wait to see what I get and I’m trying to think of what to get myself.
In addition Carin is currently running 3 different competitions, so stop on over and enter!
