This Week On WORD up! July 6, 2008

We've got something for everyone on my blog this week.

Stop by today to read my review and an excerpt from "The Sweetgum Knit Lit Society" by Beth Pattillo. This is the touching story of a group of women who meet once a month to knit and discuss literature. It would be a great book club pick.

Tuesday's chick-lit feature is a charming romance: "Love Starts With Elle" by Rachel Hauck.

Wednesday features a wonderful non-fiction book for men and women. "What Women Wish You Knew About Dating" is a funny, insightful guide to romantic relationships by Stephen Simpson.

Thursday's offering is called "Blood Brothers". It is a very good courtroom drama that will captivate fans of Grisham and Turow.

Friday showcases a wonderful non-fiction title: "Once Blind". The author’s biography of John Newton offers insight into the life of the man who wrote the song “Amazing Grace” and inspired William Wilberforce’s crusade against slavery.

Saturday, I will publish my review of Susan May Warren's wonderful novel, "Finding Stefanie".

As always, please stop by, check out the reviews and leave comments about what you think. Peruse the blog archive for previously reviewed books, Bible studies and devotionals. Sign up for my weekly newsletter to be notified when new articles are posted automatically.

DON’T FORGET...

...the book contest! WIN A COPY of "A Passion Most Pure" by Julie Lessman. This is an amazing historical romance novel! Now through Tuesday, July 15th, leave a comment (including your email address) on ANY post AND sign up for my newsletter, and I will enter you to win a copy of the book directly from the publisher! The drawing will be held on Wednesday, July 16th.

And COMING IN SEPTEMBER...

...online Bible study! I'll be posting notes and thoughts, and you can participate in discussion by leaving comments. So, even though we may not be able to meet in the same room, we can still share our thoughts on scripture. Watch for the posts on "Faithful Love in Human Relationships", a study of the book of Ruth.
