I've been tagged!

I am thrilled with the great response to the giveaway! Keep those entries coming.

The weather here is crazy. Tuesday was the first day of school, the air was humid and heavy, the classrooms stifling. A cold front moved in, and I had to pick up the girl with a sweater in hand. We've barely topped 70 since then, and the temperatures don't look as though they'll be rising too much. Is that it? No more tomatoes? Overnight lows in the 40s? Sheesh. That was quick.

Check out this guest post and watch the video about this most amamzing couple and their enourmous bookstore!

Gentle Reader from Shelf Life tagged me for a fun meme:

Here are the rules:

I am going to list three categories of books. 3 MUST Read Books, 3 Keep Your Eyes on These, and 3 Look For These Soon. Keeping with the theme, I am going to tag at least 3 bloggers. They should put these same lists on their blog but SUBTRACT one book from each list and ADD one of their own. Then they should tag at least 3 more bloggers. It will be fun to see how the lists change as they go around the blogosphere. Please come back to this post and leave a comment so I can see how the lists are changing. Since this is Book Buzz…please keep your lists to titles released in 2007-2009.

So, here goes…

[Stars are next to my additions]

3 MUST Read Books:

*Resistance by Alice Humbert
The Book of Lost Things, by John Connolly
Black Swan Green, by David Mitchell

3 Keep Your Eyes on These:

Monique and the Mango Rains, by Kris Holloway
The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, by Mary Ann Shaffer
*The Likeness by Tana French

3 Look For These Soon:

Home, by Marilynne Robinson
*When Will There Be Good News? by Kate Atkinson (review coming soon)
Indignation, by Philip Roth

3 Tags to keep this meme going:

Thanks for thinking of me on this meme. I've already done it. I find it interesting that the only book that was on my list and yours is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I'm glad to see Home on there. I have both of those books, but they're way down in my pile.

It's turned cool here, too, though I don't have a garden to worry about! I've yet to read the second Kate Atkinson mystery! I have the first Tana French book to read, and you're the second person to recommend the Humbert book!
