ON BOOKS ~ Some Bookish Interaction...


This Friday, 04/22, we will be discussing Jamie Ford's debut novel - Hotel On The Corner Of Bitter And Sweet - at 8:30PM ET right HERE in the Bumble Town Chat Room.

If you have read this book in the past or participated in this month's group read that we organized, stop by to discuss your thoughts on the story, the characters, the setting and the writing. Don't worry if it has been a while since you read the book - fuzzy details are fine and the conversation will likely jog your memory.

You can drop by any time between 8:30PM - 10:00PM ET for as long or short a period of time as you like. You simply log in as a Guest or with your Facebook ID and join the live chat by typing on your keyboard.

If you are a book blogger you have probably heard of the big annual convention in NYC each May called the Book Expo America and the tie-in Book Blogger Convention. Perhaps you even have plans to attend. But for the rest of us, there is this handy idea in its second year of existence called the Armchair BEA, taking place from 05/23-05/27.

Registration is now open, the cost is free and the time commitment and participation level is up to you. I took part last year and had tons of fun meeting all levels and styles of book bloggers around the world. I highly recommend the experience which includes discussion panels, blogger interviews, daily theme posts, Tweet Ups, giveaways and more.

Fantastic! Thank you so much for spreading the word about the event! We're really excited to have it go into it's second year and there are even a few new details I think everyone is really going to enjoy. So glad you're coming back again! It's going to be a blast!

I'm on the waiting list for this book at the library, but I think I'm all the way down to #10 or something (started at #31) so hope is in sight :) I just finished reading a fun one, Major Pettigrew's Last Stand. Have you read that one? Anyway, I'm looking forward to getting to this book, and will have to keep myself from reading what everyone has to say about it here until I"ve read it. Thanks for all the great book recommendations.

I'm 23 minutes late :( I am going to have to participate in Armchair this year. My blog needs a little TLC.

I loved this book. It was a sweet romantic story of a child growing up Chinese in the time of Pearl Harbor. The loss of his young love who as a Japanese American was interred with her family in containment camps during the war. It's a sad, funny, hopeful story that makes you feel good when you get to the last page.

This is one of the better books I have had the chance to read. The story the author weaves for us contains historical information about a sad era in this nations history. My only regret is that Hollywood has not seized this excellant story and translated it for the silver screen.
