A Couple Finds to Share

I have a couple fun book-related finds to share today. First deals with one of my "must read" series - the Alex Cooper series by Linda Fairstein. For those who don't know, she has a new Alex Cooper novel set to release in February. Despite dealing with some rather rough road personally last year, she still managed to provide her fans with a new installment. What a woman!

I have learned a lot about the NYC geography and famous locales through Linda's books. When I visited NYC in 2006 there were several times we'd come across a building and I'd say, "oh, that was in Linda's book! I read about that place!"

Lethal Legacy (I'm reading it right now) deals with the NYC Public Library...what better setting could a bibliophile hope for? I'm having a blast learning about it through the book! Anyway, Linda put together this little video that talks about the library and its connection to Lethal Legacy. I enjoyed it and wanted to share it with you, too.

And in addition to that cool find today, I was sent a link to this blog that is written by Charlotte Hughes. Maybe some of you are more familiar with her. I hadn't heard of her before this, but I was laughing hysterically at some of the posts she has on her blog. The humor might be more appreciated by women than men, but it's still funny. Check it out if the desire so strikes you. I'll be adding her blog to the ones I follow regularly. I can use a regular laugh to lighten the day! I'm betting I'll also be adding one of her books to my TBR list.

I hope you had fun ringing in the New Year, and here's to a happy 2009!

Happy Reading!

I loved Charlotte Hughes's blog on Sex and the City. I've had some of the same thoughts but she articulates them so well.

Naomi, I was reading that at working and feeling very thankful that the office was quite empty (being the day after New Years everyone took vacation days). I was laughing so hard! Too funny...and too true!
