Sunday Salon - 13 September 2009

My life this week is going to be divided between two celebrations, Book Blogger Appreciation Week (BBAW) and Christie Week. I've been getting ready for a few weeks now.

Book Blogger Appreciation Week (14-20 September)
is a celebration for book bloggers and of book blogs. My Friend Amy and her team have put immense amounts of effort into organising awards, and event for the whole week.
I'll have a daily post, including an Interview Swap. I hope to get around to look at other participants's blogs too, but that is obviously going to be quite a task.

As part of my participation I have a Book Giveway happening, with 2 books just for Australian/New Zealand readers, and two for worldwide distribution. They are all crime fiction titles, but there are no real conditions of entry, so pop in to that post and leave a comment.

Christie Week (13-20 September) begins today, and here on MiP we are celebrating with a Blog Tour with participants from all over the globe, each celebrating in a very different way. In fact the first one went up a few moments ago- check whose blog to visit at Celebrating Christie week #1.
The Blog Tour has 10 days of events scheduled culminating in ACRC Carnival #9.

So a busy week, with some of the usual stuff happening too - books being read, reviews posted, as well as weekly events like Forgotten Books and Weekly Geeks.

This week's blog posts:
Books I'm reading:
  • now - TELLING TALES, Ann Cleeves - this is a Vera Stanhope novel that I've really been looking forward to.
  • next - GHOST LINES, Nick Gadd - this won the Ned Kelly award this year for best First Fictions
  • in the car - MURDER ON THE ORIENT EXPRESS, Agatha Christie - nearly finished this narration by David Suchet and it has been excellent.

Kerrie - As usual, lots of great links to things. I'm going to try and visit the Celebrating Christie posts, at least some of them. Have a great week.
