I'm about half way through this one right now. Learning a bit about those movies I've yet to see, and some great facts I didn't know about some of the classics I've seen a thousand time. Look for the book tour swinging through later this month!

Looks good, no? Scheduled for release September 6th, 2011. Join me as I read through book 1 in the coming weeks and then....discover the wonders that await in this sequel!
Damned (Crusade, Book 2) by Nancy Holder and Debbie Vigiue
Totally thrilled when I was tapped to be on the upcoming tour for this book of potential fabulous-ness. Very curious to see how our lead characters are taking their new roles, how the little sister is holding up with her new "changes" and just what is waiting for this whole group this time around. It's gonna be good.... ^_^ Watch for the book tour to swing through in the coming months....along with your chance to win!

This one was a surprise when it arrived on my doorstep, but a happy one indeed. I had just seen it in their new catalog and was wondering what it might be like to see this devestating event through the eyes of those that experienced it first hand. Will be delving into this one soon....
That Day in September by Artie Van Why

I received this one after being contacted by the author regarding a potential review. This work is about the author's first have account of what occurred on that fateful and frightening day nearly 10 years ago. Will be reviewing this September as we remember all of those who lost their lives, their family, and their true selves during this tragedy.
Now this one required a few pictures, not merely because of the book either....but where it came from and the awesome postage stamps on the packaging! Take a look.....
...and finally, the contents!
Borneo Tom by "Borneo" Tom McLaughlin

What can I say? The book actually came from Borneo, hence the delay in receiving it.....but it will be read and reviewed for its tour date coming up fast. Stay tuned!

That's it for this week.
What did you get?
Until next time...happy reading!
