Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.

Ten months into this project, and I’ve been contacted in person by two authors now in response to my reviews!  Woohoo!  I am so ridiculously excited about that, it’s a little embarrassing.  Granted, I’m not blurbed (yet), but I honestly don’t care.  I mean, I read books and write about my thoughts on those books, and people pay attention?  This used to be a pipe dream!

Anyhoo – this was what was waiting for me in my in-box this afternoon:

Dear Michelle,

When my book, Annie’s Ghosts: A Journey Into a Family Secret, came out in May, you were among the first book bloggers to review it. I just wanted to let you know that the American Booksellers Association has chosen Annie’s Ghosts for the Independent Booksellers Fall/Winter List of Recommendations for Reading Groups, in the “A-List for Nonfiction” category. Thank you for helping to extend the book’s reach.

Here’s the link to the Fall/Winter list, in case you want to tell readers of Michelle’s Masterful Musings about it or any other books that made the list.

Steve Luxenberg

Isn’t that cool?  I reviewed his book in May and have seen it on the shelves in book stores since then.  I honestly have no idea how much influence I have, but I am impressed that he thought to reach out to little old me in his appreciation.  It definitely made my day!
