It seems as if it's been a while since I've awarded blame points, but I've got a few to dole out today.
Dewey actually walks away with three this time! I ordered An Age of Extremes and War, Peace, and All That Jazz by Joy Hakim from a series she recommended for home schooling. (Thanks Dewey--they look fabulous!) And while I first added The Uncommon Reader by Alan Bennett to my wish list after hearing about it on NPR, it was reading Dewey's review that made me finally order it. Really putting the pressure on Nymeth now, aren't you?
Chris earns a point with his review of Dream Homes: From Cairo to Katrina, An Exile's Journey by Joyce Zonana. I never really thought much about reading memoirs before, but I've read a handful this year and found I really enjoy them. This one just arrived on my doorstop and it certainly sounds like a good one!
Finally, Carl earns a point for Mouse Guard: Fall 1152 by David Petersen. I've had this on my wish list taunting me for over a year now ever since reading Carl's review. How did I finally justify buying it? I got it for Annie for Christmas. :)
Just want to remind everyone that if they participated and finished Annie's What's in A Name Challenge this year, they should pop over here and leave a comment to be entered in for the Amazon gift certificate drawing. (Sorry to keep bringing it up, I just don't want anyone to miss out.)
