This is going to look a little bit like a book-related Sunday edition of Tuesday Tangents, but here goes:
It’s my first hosted challenge, but you’ll notice I’m not calling it a “challenge” – it’s a reading project, and not a very complicated one, either. Will you join me this year in reading books by authors who blog? Check out the announcement post, and if you’re in, let me know with a comment over there!
And here I go, asking for another comment – but this time, it’s for a cause:
In case you missed it, this past Thursday was designated as Delurker Day across the blogiverse.
Following the lead of a couple of other bloggers, I decided to donate $1 per comment received on that day’s post to the Red Cross’ Haitian-earthquake relief efforts – and I’m keeping it going all weekend! Every comment this weekend – whether on the Delurker Day post, the Weekend Review, or this one – will mean another dollar to help address this crisis, so please speak up!
Just to share a couple of other things I’m excited about:
BOOKKEEPING: The Reading Status Report

When Everything Changed: The Amazing Journey of American Women from 1960 to the Present, by Gail Collins (Women Unbound Challenge) (yeah, I FINALLY finished it!)
