At the Hop

Thanks to Oh YA! Comics I found out about this fairly awesome Book Blog party! And, since it seems like fun, I thought I'd join in. I've already found a bunch of fun new book blogs - check out my sidebar for all the blogs I think everyone ought to check out :D

Book Blogger Hop

This week's challenge was TELL US ABOUT THE BOOK YOU ARE CURRENTLY READING!, which is a little hard as I've only just started reading my current book. The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, by Michael Chabon, is the story of two comic book creators in the 1940's, one of whom is desperately trying to help his family escape Nazi Europe. I've read Chabon's Yiddish Policemen's Union and loved it, so I'm pretty excited about finally getting my teeth stuck into this one - I borrowed it off a friend back in February, oops.

If you've hopped here:
Hopefully tomorrow I'll be making that Famous Five post I've promised! I'd rather be doing that than what I'm currently doing, which is transcribing interviews. Sigh.

Hey there! Glad to see you stopped by our blog. It is cool that you are doing the same thing as us (reading 52 books in a year). I have already read more books this year than I read all last year!

Great to see you joined the blog hop!

Hey! Great blog! I can tell I'm going to have heaps of fun (and bring back heaps of memories) exploring it further. I loved mysteries growing up (and still do!) and spent many hours reading Nancy Drew, Susan Sand, Trixie Belden, etc. I'm a new follower :-)

I just finished Kavalier and Clay. It's been a long time since I've torn through such a long book so quickly.

Happy Friday from California. Pussreboots.
