Celebrate Your Freedom to Read – It’s Banned Books Week!
Monday, September 22nd, 2014: Today is the day I celebrate my freedom to get a new driver’s license. Goodbye CA driver’s license and hello NC driver’s license. It was either that or fly back to SoCal just to have a new picture taken for my license renewal – go figure. Fingers crossed I pass the test on the first try…
Tuesday, September 23rd, 2014: We’re reviewing The Last Breath by Kimberly Belle. Gia is a humanitarian aid work used to following disasters around the globe. But when she returns home to care for her dying father, that’s a totally different thing. He’s been in prison since being convicted of killing her stepmother and no one in the family has ever forgiven him for that – but did he do it?
Wednesday, September 24th, 2014: We’re reviewing and hosting a Giveaway for Cattle Kate by award-winning investigative journalist Jana Bommersbach. Why is myth stronger than truth? Cattle Kate was the only real woman ever lynched as a cattle rustler but it was all a lie. Bommersbach brings the truth about the real Wyoming homesteader, Emma Watson a.k.a. Cattle Kate, to life through this fascinating but chilling novel based on extensive research.
Thursday, September 25th, 2014: It’s my birthday and I have no intention of being calm about it! I look forward to celebrating like crazy that I was born and continue to thrive on this planet, despite some close calls in the past. Whoot! Bring on the cake (chocolate, of course)!
Friday, September 26th, 2014: We’re reviewing Rose Gold, the new Easy Rawlins novel by that iconic multi-award-winning author Walter Mosley. It’s the days of peace and love, and Black Power, when Easy gets caught up in a situation reminiscent of the Patty Hearst kidnapping. But was Rose Gold actually kidnapped? And why are the LAPD, the FBI, and the U.S. State Department so interested in what Easy might uncover?
