Last time I blogged, I declared my goal of reading and reviewing books by all my published ANWA sisters. This blog today is to report on what I’ve accomplished so far.
1. I set up a blog specifically for the purpose of reviewing books and reporting on the progress of my own writing.
2. I wrote and posted two reviews that I had promised two of my LDStorymakers sisters prior to my declaration in this blog.
3. I ordered Joyce DiPastena’s Loyalty’s Web, Marsha Ward’s Ride to Raton and Jennifer Stewart Griffith's Delicious Conversations. I already had Gayla Wise’s book The Power of Your Patriarchal Blessing in my library, and it’s in line to be read.
4. I finished Loyalty’s Web last night at midnight. When I review it, I’ll post an invitation to all my ANWA sisters to check it out.
My family laughs at me because, when I took up the baritone horn, I decreed that everyone had to take up the baritone horn. I blogged about that here in an essay entitled “Free Agency and How to Enforce It”. Well, this is shaping up to be another of my crusades, only there are no brass horns involved.
This crusade is for us to collectively raise the profile of LDS literature on the internet. I hope you’ll join me in reading and posting about the books you’ve read. If you don’t have your own blog, you can post on www.amazon.com . Just search for the book you've read and go to its page, then click on 'write a review'.
Or, join Goodreads at www.goodreads.com or Shelfari at www.shelfari.com Joining both is easy and free. Setting up your own blog is also easy and free. Go to http://www.blogspot.com/ and follow directions.
And by the way, thanks to Rachel, who accepted my invitation to tap me as a friend on Goodreads. That made my day!
