Lists

Couple of handy book lists in today's newspapers.

First, the Michigan Notable Books have been announced.  This is a great program that highlights books by Michigan authors and/or with Michigan settings.  I'll have a longer post about Michigan Notables later in the week (and possibly a Notable Books reading challenge); but for now, here's the link to the list.

Second, the Grand Rapids Press has a gift guide of books by Michigan authors.  (Full disclosure: two of my books are included in the list, so I probably shouldn't be linking you to it; but eh, what the heck - why have a blog if not for the shameless self-promotion opportunties it provides? ;)  Fiction, history, memoir, mystery, kids' books, and more -- find the list here.

Other than having to put down your book periodically to go shovel the drive, it's a great day for reading in Michigan.  So start a fire in your fireplace, stir up some hot cocoa, and settle in for the afternoon with a good book!
