Saturday Shout-Out

On my travels through the blogging world, I find many books that pique my interest. I always add them to my wish list immediately but I tend to forget who deserves the blame credit for inspiring me to add them to my list (and to whom my husband would like to send the bill when I get around to actually buying them). So each Saturday I'm going to try and keep better track, link to my fellow book ferreter-outers (I know, not a word but useful nonetheless), and hopefully add to some of your wish lists too.

The Cookbook Collector by Allegra Goodman was mentioned on Breaking the Spine.

Writing Jane Austen by Elizabeth Aston was mentioned on Austenprose.

A Lost Wife's Tale by Marion McGilvary was mentioned on Book End Babes.

Cool Water by Dianne Warren was mentioned on Caribousmom.

The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elizabeth Tova Bailey was mentioned on Algonquin Books Blog.

What goodies have you added to your wish lists recently? Make your own list and leave a comment here so we can all see who has been a terrible influence inspiring you lately.


  1. I'm anxious to get my hands on THE COOKBOOK COLLECTOR too, especially since it counts for my 2010 EW Summer Books reading Challenge!

  2. An interesting collection of books there Kristen. I must say though that I'm really kind of over the title having to be as Quirky as possible. The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating being the latest to flash before my eyes. I hope someone more clever than me has thought up an impossibly clever genre name for them.

  3. I won Writing Jane Austen during the read-a-thon and cannot wait to read it!

    Cool Water looks really good. I love Canadian Prairie stories :)

  4. Thanks for the shout-out...I'm looking forward to that one; hope you'll also like it :)

  5. Writing Jane Austen sounds like a good book. Thanks for the links.

  6. Hi Kristen, thanks for the link. I hope you enjoy Writing Jane Austen.

    Cheers, Laurel Ann
