Upcoming events

I've been rather lax with my blog recently -- sometimes, we just get very busy.

That's about to change as there are lots of interesting posts coming up in the near future.

This Wednesday, I will be taking part in the Eco-Libris Green Books campaign. At 1 p.m. EST, 200 bloggers will simultaneously publish reviews of 200 books printed on environmentally-
friendly paper. By turning a spotlight on books printed using greener methods, Eco-Libris aims to raise consumer awareness about considering the environment when making book purchases. This year’s participation of both bloggers and books has doubled from the event’s inception last year.

The 200 books to be reviewed are in a variety of subjects, including cooking, poetry, travel, green living and history, and come from 56 publishers from the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K. that are participating in the Green Books Campaign. This diversified group of publishers includes both small and large presses who all print books on recycled and-or FSC-certified paper. 
This is the second year I've participated and it's really a lot of fun. I have a great book to review this year! For a complete list of participating blogs, go to the campaign's main page at Eco-Libris.
On November 17, I'll be reviewing the book "Fated" by S.G. Browne. I hope to have an author interview to go along with it.

As the holidays approach, I plan to have lots of reviews of Christmas books, including two from Pump Up Your Book blog tours on December 17 -- "I Am Santa" and "The Christmas Chronicles."

In between, there will be a variety of other book reviews, as well. So, be sure to follow my blog for regular updates on what's happening. I just know you'll enjoy it!
