Mandi Moore (no not that one but I bet the google hits start pouring in now) had an exciting announcement:
'I want to make the announcement that I am expecting a baby! The little one is due July 13th. We have our ultrasound scheduled for Feb 19th to find out the gender.'
Hope that went well :)
People were looking forward to some new releases:
'In February, I'm excited for the new Maeve Binchy novel, although I really didn't like her last one.'
'Scott Pilgrim Vol. 5 by Bryan Lee O'Malley is comes out this week. The Demi God Files by Rick Riordan comes out next week. I am stoked about both of these. One is my favorite indie comic, and the other is a companion book to one of my favorite fantasy series.'
'I'm really looking forward to Evermore by Alyson Noel, which gets released tomorrow (February 3).'
I've only had a few book totals through for February so if you haven't sent yours through please leave it here. I'm thinking I might not ask for any more totals until the middle of the year, I don't want you all to feel the pressure - this is all about fun.
Speaking of fun I'll be announcing the titles in our very special book bonanza giveaway tomorrow. Lots of goodies.
