Rebecca of Lost in Books did a fabulous job of pulling together book bloggers with the same name in this post: What's in a Name? Check and see which bloggers share your name.

And yes, I've commented on 5 (dozen?) blogs this week. :-)

Nicole is a friend I met in the Prague Summer Program and it’s been wonderful to see her work there turned into a book. She’s written a well-crafted memoir about her battle with an eating disorder, listed as one of the “Best of Eating Disorder Books” on And she’s getting married next weekend!

Oops! I forgot to say that I've visited 5+ (6? 7?) blogs and commented. So much fun!

Mary at Books Gardens and Dogs wrote a great post about a girl who keeps a private lending library of books on the banned books list for her classmates to borrow. The link is here.

I have also shared the love with quite a few blogs the past couple of days :D

I have also added the LLM link to my sidebar.

Thanks, Mitali, I love The Rock and The River. Beautiful piece of writing. Love your new book as well. Review coming soon.

To all, updating these links shortly.

I'm sure we're all a little behind following the long holiday weekend, so let's show some lov'n today. New links posted.
