Sweetness? Sweet!

sweetnessThe Virtual Book Club, which I started in early 2007, has now worked its way through all the books in the LRK canon and a number of related novels and non-fiction works. So in September, we begin anew, only with a difference: We’ll do the occasional month of “The Writer as Reader” where I choose a book, give a copy away, and hold an interview or online chat with the author towards the end of that month.

Our first book? The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, by Alan Bradley, a book I adored, blurbed, and have pushed into every empty hand I see. Sign up below for a chance to win an autographed copy of the book (the drawing will be on September 4th) and come here on September 1st to start the talk.

    Do we have to sign up if we’re already part of the VBC?

    Howdy! *Waves to Elizabeth* Yep, this one will be drawn only from those who sign up via the form above (which is linked over on the VBC as well).

    Hi, everyone! I just wanted to say that, if you haven’t picked up and read this book yet, RUN, do not walk, to your nearest bookstore or library! I devoured it yesterday — even stayed up past my bedtime to finish it. Definitely a keeper, and I can’t wait for the discussion 🙂
