The Purge Begins!

I feel like I've been ignoring my blogging duties lately and I apologize. I've been super busy unpacking, sorting and throwing things out, along with planting a garden, watering it and begging the little plants not to die. But I haven't disappeared. Next week things should be back to normal. I'm hoping to finish up a few books in the next couple of days so I have something to review on here. And don't forget about book club in two weeks! (In case you forgot, we're reading All About Lulu by Jonathan Evison, review to come shortly.)

In the meantime, I've decided to start purging my bookshelf. I've only got one lonely little bookshelf in my new apartment and no space on it for all of my library books and TBR books so out the old ones go. This is lucky news for YOU because it means I'll be hosting more giveaways, starting today with A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah. I know most of you have probably already read it, but if you somehow missed that train, you now have the perfect opportunity to hop on board. I'll be posting some more books in a couple of days. I'm not at the apartment right now so don't have the other titles on hand.

If you'd like to win a copy of A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Beah, leave a comment here by Midnight July 20. I'll be picking a winner Monday morning.
