My family thinks it is a bit strange that I carry my iPad mini EVERYWHERE I go, because I need constant access to my books. It is not that I have to read at all times, it is that I have to know that I CAN read whenever I feel the need. I also love to discuss the books that I am reading. Sometimes other people see things so differently than I do, and that gives me an entirely new way to approach a book. That would make you think that I am a prime candidate for a book club, but alas, my schedule and my frequent bouts with isolationism make that difficult. I am actually hoping to get a book club of sorts started on this site. We can get a group together to pick a book and discuss away.
I am getting ahead of myself as usual. For now I want to say how excited I am with the response to this blog. We have had lots of hits but not enough participation on your part. I need you all to tell me what books are going to be great companions. Even one or two lines will send me in the right direction. I am hoping to add reviews, mine and yours, every few days, and change Thru My Looking Glass every two weeks. I will feature a new author each month and promise you will love them. April's author is James Grippando, an author who caught my attention years ago, with The Pardon and has followed that winner with many more great novels. His latest book, Black Horizon, mixes politics and the law in a way that he does so well.
To make things easier for you, I am setting up an area for people to subscribe to this site. I will then email out a link each time there is an update. To entice you, I will pick an entered name at random, on May 15. The winner will receive a $25.00 Amazon gift card.
Hope everyone enjoys the upcoming holidays and has a chance to catch up on all of the great new books that have been published.
