In keeping with our previous GatheringBooks special, we are launching our Message in a Bottle theme for January and February 2011.
Essentially, we would be featuring books that have a letter/postcard theme to it. Fats is eager to review her Nick Bantock books, I am looking forward to featuring Mark Teague’s La Rue picture books (Letters from the Obedience School being one of them) as well as the Beatrice Letters by Lemony Snicket. I think Mary would be featuring Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet. These are just some snippets and snapshots of what we would be sharing with you this January and February.
We are also happy to do a Chinese New Year Special between January 30 – February 5, 2011. Books that have Chinese tales, legends, stories would likewise be reviewed during this week.
If you are a book blogger and you have done some reviews about these themes, do drop us a line and we shall provide a link to your site by the first week of March. Or if there are books you would like to recommend to us, let us know by sending us an email or leaving a comment on this post so we can hunt for those stories.
