New Stuff

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 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.


  1. Congratulations! That's so cool, I love winning books and I love getting books in the mail :) Seems like it's meant to be, based on what you're reading. Enjoy!

  2. Congrats! I've been eyeing this book for the stunning cover, and what's between the covers sounds mighty good, too!

  3. Congratulations! It's always fun getting a surprise book in the mail. :-)

  4. Very cool! I do the same thing with the Random House drawings and yet, I've sadly never gotten one!


  5. Surprise books are awesome. I read A Passage to India for a book club last year and was surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

  6. Thanks! I can't believe I got lucky. I must go buy lotto ticket.
