Q. Book Blogger Pride: What do you take pride in when it comes to blogging?
Such a hard thing to answer - and in short, I take pride in making this website a space that I LOVE. That means spending TIME on my posts and making them uniquely mine even when I'm participating in a meme with hundreds of other blog participants. My favorite things about this website - everything! The Book Lists, the Bloggers Recommend series, and the weekly Book Discussions and Book Chat.
The OCM Bocas Prize for Caribbean Writers has announced their longlist. There are 4 non-fiction novels, 2 of which are short-stories that are going on my reading list stat! There is also a non-fiction and a poetry category. Winners will be announced on March 16, 2012.
Books = Love (via Constance Reader). This is where I found out about the Read.gov contest inviting readers in grades 4 through 12 to submit a letter to their favorite author, telling them how their books have changed their lives, sponsored by the Book in the Library of Congress. Some of these letters tugged at my heart strings hard - this one on strength, and this one about what a young girl experienced when she started wearing her hajib - both brought tears to my eyes.
