(March 2010 Edition)
I look forward to reading the monthly BookPage newspaper magazine that is chock full of bookish news and information. This is a FREE magazine that is available at most libraries and bookstores (although personally, I have only found it at indie bookstores). I anxiously await each months edition and pick up a copy at my local library. What I love about Bookpage is that it is fun to read and full of interesting bookish news. There are several features that I love to read: Buzz Girl (publisher info on authors and upcoming books & news), Meet an author-one for adult fiction & one for childrens fiction. This is a fun column where a featured author hand writes answers to questions and the childrens authors usually adds drawings and illustrations. There is also a book club and cooking columns. I have to say I read this magazine cover to cover as it highlights so many different books..fiction, mystery, childrens, teens, memoirs, travel, romance, and more. I always find books to add to my wishlist. Here are some that caught my eye from the March edition:
House Rules by Jodi Picoult: From reading the article in BookPage, it has me interested. I haven't read the last few books by Picoult but this one sounds like a story that I want to read.
Making Toast by Roger Rosenblatt: This sounds like a touching memoir about life and family and I love the cover art.
The Journal Keeper by Phyllis Theroux: This grabbed my interest as it is about mothers and daughters, journal writing, writing, spiritual growth and more.
Favorite Food at Home by Rachel Allen: I am always looking for new cookbooks and this one sounds great. Rachel Allen is a TV cooking star in Ireland and England and has "an easy comfortable way with food" and the cookbook is described as "Real food for all occasions". Sounds good to me!
If you haven't read BookPage, I'd highly recommend you look for a copy at your local library. You can also check out the BookPage website where you can read the current issue online, read about books and authors, book news, enter contests, and they also have a blog and much more.
If you have read BookPage can you share what you like about it and where you're able to find a copy?
