I had a totally unexpected surprise in the mail. Random House has bi-weekly draws for their latest books. Of course, I send in emails for the draws and then forget about them as soon as I hit 'Send'. I guess I won. I received The Assassin's Song by M.G. Vassanji. It's set partly in India.
That's so interesting because I'm reading A Passage to India. I think I have another favorite author. I love how E.M. Forster gets into the minds of his characters.
LibraryThing, which is the greatest thing in the world, has a blog. A recent post directs readers to a website called BookVideos.tv. Very cool. I loved the segment from Posie Graeme-Evans. Her enthusiasm for writing and her characters is charming. I haven't read any of her work but I'm willing to look into it now. I like this site because of just having a trailer for the book, you get a sense of the author.
