English Major's Junk Food stemmed from the realization that it's okay to read FUN books. In public! I review anything from young adult to creative nonfiction to classics, and I read because I enjoy it for myself not to impress someone else. I also talk about my life as an English major and college student.

That's A Novel Idea is a book blog that doesn't focus on one particular genre. Most reads are fiction though a memoir really floats my boat as well. Reviews can be sporadic at times due to a busy working and personal life, but my love of books and reading never wavers! My goal is to share about books, meet other book bloggers, and hopefully encourage someone to read a book they would never have considered on their own.

A Novel Source
(Stacy)
A blend of eclectic book reviews, southern recipes & the journey through the joys & trials of opening my own bookstore.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


 
I've always been a big reader. Growing up in Brooklyn, N.Y., I also rode my bike and went to camp and did all the regular-kid stuff, but mostly what I did was read. I actually think about my school years in terms of what I was reading at the time: Pippi Longstocking in second grade, Little House in third,A Wrinkle in Time and The Blak Stallion in fourth, Island of the Blue Dolphins and Harriet the Spy in fifth. When I hit my teens, I was a bookworm with a major crisis: my local library had hardly any YA books!

Author of several titles perfectly fit for the Children's Fiction genre, Barbara Dee offers readers young and young at heart the chance to see the world through a young girls' eyes...complete with the pitfalls along the way.  Thanks to this sponsor's generosity, we have three copies of her latest title, This Is Me From Now, to add to the Kick-Off Contest!  For more information on her comings and goings as well as a further look at her reading and writing world growing up, visit her website or follow along on Twitter!

(Shelly Burns)
I read what authors write, then I write about what I read. My focus is mostly on KidLit, children's books, but I also love reading and reviewing YA. Adult fiction reviews can be found from time to time.

The Nerd's Wife
The Nerd's Wife

I'm a mom of two young children so my blog focuses mainly on reviews of books for young kids. I also occasionally review middle grade, YA, adult fiction and every so often other products. I often include crafts in my posts and love participating in kids' book memes when I have time. Curious? Be sure to stop by and say hi!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Tribute Books celebrates its 6th year in 2010 as an independent publisher for independent writers.

I am proud to provide graphic design, quality printing, national distribution and book promotion for writers with an entrepreneurial spirit.  Publishing a book takes guts. An author needs to possess the courage to share his or her voice with the world. It is an investment of time, money and energy to transform a rough manuscript into a polished work. I applaud risk takers and strive to provide them with an outlet for their creations.

Celebrating the spirit of the independent publisher with truly flying colors, Nicole Langan is generous with both her time and her resources.  For our celebration, she has graciously donated several titles in a variety of genres.  For more information on these titles and several others, please visit their website or follow along on Twitter!  Being a reader as well, she has a separate book blog for your reading pleasure...feel free to stop by and say hello.
