1. Don’t forget to comment on my September giveaway post for your chance to win ON BEAUTY by Zadie Smith or BROETRY by Brian McGackin! Right now only one person has entered… (Torie Michelle, you may end up winning both!)
2. Today I’m over at Writer Unboxed talking about bad/blah books and why I’ve learned to put them down. Some people come to this realization more quickly than I did, especially with bad books. But I want to stress here that I’m including BLAH books now too — the ones that are oh-kaay, and you kind of want to know what happens, but you’re just not enjoying reading them. For me, those are much harder to put down than flat-out bad books, but just as important to abandon (if not more so). Read the post to find out why.
