Earlier today I wrote about a new site I found a few months ago: Carrie Ann Lahain. Whether you're an author and/or reader, you'll find many interesting book reviews and other articles. Please check it out.


Another site I stumbled across not too long ago is The Fussy Librarian. Again whether you're an author and/or reader, this site is for you! It's free to join, I highly recommend it, and will write more about it on a later post.

If you click on the link above on Saturday the 25th after about 12:00 noon CDT, my memoir should be the first or second one appearing on the page! Newsletters are e-mailed to members, and those who indicated they enjoyed reading memoirs, will be notified about mine, along with others. Only so many are highlighted per day, so it's not too overwhelming. Please take a moment to check it out!

Looking for a good book to read? Or maybe to add to your already huge stack of "to be read" books? Keep reading and you'll find out where to read tons of reviews that might help you decide.

I don't remember how I found Carrie Ann Lahain (you know, the usual web searching, blog hopping, etc. and then I have no idea how I got there?) I love her statement at the top of her site: Because Good Writers Read!

Carrie is both a writer, a voracious reader, and sometimes gives book reviews. I'm very grateful that she agreed to read my memoir, From Pigtails to Chin Hairs: A Memoir & More. Her review is posted on Amazon, other websites, and it's highlighted today on her website here:

One of the things I really enjoyed about her review was how she "got it", how she grasped what I wrote about my relationships with my mother and my oldest sister.

Carrie stated she's slowing down on review request acceptances because she has SO many already, but you can check out her website and read the requirements.

Thank you again, Carrie, for sharing your thoughts about my memoir.
