Little Lov'n Monday

Little Lov'n Monday is a day we celebrate the work of fellow bloggers. Between now and Wednesday, post a link to an article, contest, interview, poem- anything you think deserves a little lov'n. Leave a link and be entered in LLM Giveaway. Deadline is July 24th. Winner announced on Saturday. I'll leave this open to readers outside of the US and Canada, but instead of shipping a book, I'll email you a gift card. It's too costly for me to ship beyond Canada. Congratulations, Doret. Visit Doret at The Happy Nappy Bookseller.

Commit to visiting 5 blogs and leaving comments. If you do that, let us know. You might not care about winning a book, but I'm thinking you're a cool person who cares. Tell us that you shared some love. Thanks. Winner may choose a prize from the list or any previously offered book if it is available:

Houston, we have a problema by Gwendolyn Zepeda
B as in Beauty in Alberto Ferreras
Goddess for Hire by Sonia Singh
Uglies by Scott Westerfield
Meeting of the Waters by Kim McLarin

Really enjoyed this brief post at Brown Man Thinking Hard about what I think was one of the most important lines of Obama's recent speech to NAACP:

So many great links! I checked out the Book Blogger Appreciation Week site, and also commented at Teddy Rose's and Jacket Whys' posts

Also, I plugged this in my own blog, but my co-editor at Gloom Cupboard has a piece at his own blog about cover letters: http://stu-stusplace.blogspot.com/2009/07/letters-to-editor.html

Susan,
I read this as an addition to your argument about reading books by/about people of color. This is from a new author - Why Multicultural literature matters
