Book Bloggers Spreading the Love (1)

Monday January 24, 2010

As we all know one of the many benefits of being an active book blogger who has been around awhile is receiving books for review from authors and publishers. Face it, its pretty awesome! For the most part when I finish reviewing a book I always donate them to my school library but I always have a few on hand that aren't appropriate for a middle school library or perhaps I already have a few copies and don't necessarily need another one. Sometimes I donate them to other schools in my district but I've always wanted to pass them on to other reviewers...

So, finally, as a New Years resolution I've decided to start a new meme (maybe its new, after all this IS the internet, is anything really "new"?)

This is what I propose...

Every Monday I will offer a book to a fellow book blogger who has never read or reviewed the book I'm offering. They will leave a link to their blog and promise to read and review the book I send them. See how simple that is! I will randomly choose a name, contact that person and send them the book! Presents, yeah!

Maybe you'll join me, maybe you won't but it will posted here on Mondays each week! If you have some books sitting on a shelf that look lonely and could bring a smile to someone elses face, I hope you'll participate! 

**If you are offering a book, grab the "Spreading the Love" logo above add your name to the Linkz below.

**If you'd like to review the book I'm offering, leave your name and a link to your blog in the comment section.  

Thanks for looking and even if you don't participate, please tweet or blog about this meme if you would be so kind!

This weeks pick:

When you piss off a bridge into a snowstorm, it feels like you’re connecting with eternal things. Paying homage to something or someone. But who? The Druids? Walt Whitman? No, I pay homage to one person only, my brother, my twin.

In life. In death.
Telemachus.

Since the death of his brother, Jonathan’s been losing his grip on reality. Last year’s Best Young Poet and gifted guitarist is now Taft High School’s resident tortured artist, when he bothers to show up. He's on track to repeat eleventh grade, but his English teacher, his principal, and his crew of Thicks (who refuse to be seniors without him) won’t sit back and let him fail.

This is really sweet of you to do. I don't actually need this book, it is always checked in at my library, but i am sure there is a blogger out there who really needs it.

Great idea! I already have this book on my Kindle, but I'm sure someone will want to read it. I'd love to participate in this meme, as soon as my funds are in better standing.

Don't know if I am too late...Never heard of this book, but it sounds really good, and I would be interested in reviewing it.

Also, I am definitely going to be participating in this meme! Way to spread the love!
