Over at my book review blog, Compulsive Overreader, I’ve finally gotten around to updating reviews on the last several books I’ve read. Head on over and check ’em out.
I have one or two more to add, and then I’m going to post my Top Ten Books of 2008 — not exactly awaited by the literary world with the same anticipation as the Booker longlist, but lots of fun for me as I reflect on the books that made the biggest impact on me this year.
Fun for you, too, because like last year, I’m going to have a contest for my blog readers, with the chance to win a book from the Top Ten list as a prize. Last year, you may recall, I challenged people to identify the books on the shelf behind me in the blog header picture. This year I will be using the contest as Shameless Self Promotion (what writer doesn’t love that?) with a scavenger-hunt list of questions that you’ll have to answer by scurrying around my website here and discovering various things I’ve posted about my writing. So watch this space for the contest announcement and get ready to win a book!!
