Litsy, Book Awards, plus, don't you forget about 84, Charing Cross Road and Nobody's Fool.
Ann and I are both on Litsy, a
new photo-focused book-based social media app (usernames
AnnKingman and mkindness). The one problem we're encountering is
posting about a book that we're reading electronically in
manuscript form; they're not very photogenic!
So, check out Litsy and let us know what you think!
Congratulations to all the winners and the runners-up!
Within the past few weeks, posts from two different book lovers wrote statuses that showed in my Facebook feed. They had each read, for the first time, 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff. It's something that all book lovers should read, and a book I only read myself a few years ago.
Though it's an older book, Ann only recently read Nobody's Fool by Richard Russo. On paper, Donald "Sully" Sullivan doesn't seem like a character you'd fall in love with. He's a drinking, gambling, womanizer who lives in a dying town in upstate New York. But Ann says he's a character that you'll long remember.
