What did you really think of Crocodile on the Sandbank and what specifically did you like or not like. There will be a prize for a random critique. If your comments include a spoiler, please mention it in the subject line. For those who liked this book there is good news and bad news--the bad news, no Amelia Peabody episode this spring--the good? Well there are already 17 books in the series and you have plenty of time to read them before Peters delivers the next 2 books in her contract with the publisher.
This month there are several prize choices--hardcover copies of numbers 10 and 11 in the Amelia Peabody series: The Ape Who Guards the Balance or The Falcon at the Portal. If you never want to hear of Amelia again, I also have hardcover copies of Jacqueline Winspear's latest Maisie Dobbs novel, Messenger of Truth, or Julie Garwood's Slow Burn (2005). If you like audio, I have a once and gently used cd version of James Patterson's Judge & Jury.
I'll try to get a picture posted, but since my DH got involved in the camera selection process, things are a little slow in the digital photography department. I'm not going to put reviews of the prize offerings on the blog, but plenty of review material is available on www.amazon.com or www.barnesandnoble.com
While we are all enjoying Northern Lights, we do have to spare a moment to think about March and April. Please nominate something you would like to read, only one suggestion per member, please. Because we want to have a decision in time for everyone to get the book by March, nominations will close on Feb 5 so we can post a poll. Please put something in the subject line to let me know that a book suggestion is included--I don't want anyone's idea left out.
PS. The snow is coming down here in NC--am I ever in the mood for a book set in Alaska! And for the weight watchers among us--it's hard to eat while your hands are full of knitting!
