I have yet to finish the novel that’s been sitting on my nightstand for the past four months (Katheryn Stockett’s The Help
). I’m two months behind in What to Expect: The Toddler Years
. But last month my twins turned one and the milestone created slightly more bandwidth in my brain for online reading. Yes I’m starting to read again, and regularly, in “my field.” Here’s what’s on my radar of late:
Publisher’s Weekly - Memoirs Dominate an Up Black Friday at Indies
(good news for all you memoir writers out there!)
The New York Times 100 Notable Books 2010
(Congrats to She Writer Bethany McClean, plus soon-to-join-us She Writers Rebecca Traister and Annie Murphy Paul, all of whom are on The List)
National Book Award Winners 2010
(wonderfully evenly split along gender lines - hooray)
Babble - Top 50 Mom Blogs – Best Written category
(Congrats to PunditMom for being on the general list! Huzzah!)
GalleyCat - Best Novels of 2010: A Literary Mixtape
(this is just very cool)
Feministing – Not Oprah’s Book Club: Traveling with Pomegranates
(Courtney Martin’s review of the book co-authored by mother and daughter team Sue Monk Kidd and Ann Kidd Taylor)
Bitch – Adventures in Feministory: Nella Larsen
(because I love all things Nella)
NaNoWriMo’s Facebook page – Share Your Final Sentence!
(because even though I didn't do it, I’m feeling relieved, along with all many actual
SheWriMos, those who hit it and those who did not, that NaNo ends today)
