  2. I followed you over here from the NY Times article (I'm one of Melissa's followers so that's how I found it).

    Love your blog! You read and review a lot of the books I like to read. I'll be going through and catching up on your reviews!

  3. “But I want to read the African-American version of ‘The Help,’ ” she said.

    And you called the book racist? I can understand how you might have thought that, but to say that the only reason you might want to read another version of the book is the color of the author's skin -- now that's racist.

  4. You did fine. I can't wait to read the book. I've been intrigued lately about how authors give different characters their voices.
    Do you have any links to book blogs that are more oriented to men's reading tastes?
