Weekly Geeks #12

by Kim on July 22, 2008 · 8 comments

This weeks Weekly Geek challenge (courtesy of Dewey at The Hidden Side of a Leaf) is to get caught up on book reviews with help from other bloggers. Here are the instructions from Dewy:

1. In your blog, list any books you’ve read but haven’t reviewed yet. If you’re all caught up on reviews, maybe you could try this with whatever book(s) you finish this week.

2. Ask your readers to ask you questions about any of the books they want. In your comments, not in their blogs. Most likely, people who will ask you questions will be people who have read one of the books or know something about it because they want to read it.

3. Later, take whichever questions you like from your comments and use them in a post about each book. I’ll probably turn mine into a sort of interview-review. Link to each blogger next to that blogger’s question(s).

4. Visit other Weekly Geeks and ask them some questions!

At first, I worried I didn’t have any books to review, but I finished two this weekend. I also am going to copy something from Andi at AndiLit.com — posting books I read awhile ago that I really enjoy, and opening those up for questions and reviews.

These are books that I have read and not reviewed, or a favorite book I would like to blog about. Those in bold are books I have finished reading this year, but not reviewed. The rest are just old favorites :)

  • All the Fishes Come Home to Roost by Rachel Manija Brown (memoir)
  • Stardust by Neil Gaimain (fiction)
  • Blankets by Craig Thompson (comic book)
  • Jesus Land by Julia Scheeres (memoir)
  • Convergence Culture by Dr. Henry Jenkins (nonfiction, cultural studies)
  • The Falls by Joyce Carol Oats (fiction)
  • We Were the Mulvaneys by Joyce Carol Oats (fiction)
  • Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi (memoir)
  • Eragon/Eldest by Christopher Paolini (young adult fiction)

If you have questions about any of these books, leave them in the comments and I’ll write up answers/a review of them later this week!
