A couple of days ago I sent out the December newsletter for subscribers at Mother Daughter Book Club.com. This month’s edition has ideas for gifts for book lovers, including tea bags with literary sayings and reading-themed jewelry. I’ve also included reviews of Al Capone Shines My Shoes by Gennifer Choldenko and Lips Touch, Three Times by Laini Taylor, illustrated by Jim Di Bartolo, both of which I highly recommend. You’ll also find an essay on writing poetry by Sage Cohen, author of Writing the Life Poetic, and an article about shifting the holiday focus to giving, by Maggie Macaulay of Whole Hearted Parenting.
And you’ll find new info about my book reviews at Reading Local Portland. Interested in signing up so you can receive the newsletters direct to you mailbox each month? Just visit the subscription page and follow the instructions.
