How To Knit A Love Song

I'm so excited! Our own Rachael Herron's first novel, HOW TO KNIT A LOVE SONG, hits the stands tomorrow and you really, truly owe it to yourself to pick up a copy ASAP.

Am I biased? Yes. Definitely! I'm a shameless fan of Rachael's blog and was thrilled beyond measure when I had the privilege of reading a review copy of HOW TO KNIT A LOVE SONG last year.

I loved it. Honestly loved it. I loved it so much that it was my favorite fiction read of 2009. It's the one I can't quite get out of my mind. And trust me, knitters, you are going to love it too.

Rachael doesn't know I'm posting this. I may even embarrass her. But there's only one first novel and there's only one Rachael Herron and I couldn't let the moment slip by without shouting from the rooftops: "You've gotta buy this book!"

Mazel tov, Rachael. Enjoy every second of the excitement.

And please write fast, okay?

xoxo from BB

Happy 2010 and 2 Best Reads of 2009

I can't say I wasn't warned.

Once you decide to make your blog your de facto home page, you owe it to your visitors to actually provide new content every so often. Daily is best. Every other day is acceptable. Once a week is borderline. Once a season? Not so much.

I don't make resolutions. At least not in the traditional New Year's sense. (They have a way of coming back to haunt you, don't they?) I mean, I've probably pledged blogging fidelity at least a half dozen times before. So I won't say it. But let's see what happens.

2009 was a reading year for me and there are two clear cut winners for top marks.

My Life in France - Julia Child and Alex Prud'Homme
I fell in love with Julia. Head-over-heels, as a matter of fact. Her joie de vivre is irresistible. Her story? Better than fiction.


How To Knit A Love Song - Rachael Herron
I was lucky enough to read an advance copy and I literally couldn't put it down until I reached the end. If you're familiar with Rachael's fab blog, then you're probably head-over-heels for Rachael already. Her warm, funny, engaging style translates seamlessly from blog to novel. Best of all, this is book #1 in a series!

To be continued . . .
