Winners and What's Happening

Congratulations to the winners of the last giveaway. Sue Ann Jaffarian's Ghost of a Gamble will go to Dotty K. of Weymouth, MA. Rose M. from Juneau, WI won Heather Blake's The Goodbye Witch. The books are going out in the mail today. And, thank you to all the new readers who entered the contest. Welcome to Lesa's Book Critiques!

I have some extensive travel coming up in the next couple weeks. Don't worry! The cat sitters love the cats, so they'll have good company. But, saying that, my blog might be a little irregular. One trip is a short road trip to Ann Patchett's bookstore, Parnassus Books in Nashville. A couple of us just want to check out this independent bookstore.

And, then I'm leaving for New York City for Book Expo America, BEA. Full days at the publishing world's trade show, and nights at book events or theater. I have tickets to three Broadway shows. It's a busy schedule with sometimes not a lot of reading or blogging time.

I'm just telling you this now so you know not to expect my daily blogs. Contests will resume when I come back from BEA, and I'll do reviews or updates when I can. So, check back regularly. You never know when I'll have a post. And, of course, the June 1 post will be the regular Treasures in My Closet, July's forthcoming books.

I'm not leaving yet, so stop back tomorrow. I just wanted to let you in on what's happening.

I'm curious--what plays are you going to see?

Going to A Raisin in the Sun with Denzel Washington, Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, and Violet with Sutton Foster. What am I anticipating the most? Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder.

Have fun in Nashville, you'll be close to Asheville and we have lots of great independent bookstores.

Thanks, Page! I'm going with a friend, so I don't know our schedule, but I'll keep that in mind!

Have fun, Lesa!

Donald and Harley and I are going to be in Nashville in August for "Killer Nashville." I'm looking forward to checking out Parnassus Books.

BEA. oh, you. Jealous. Jealous, OH so jealous. Have a ball - can't wait to hear all about it and the plays (you chose great plays, I think!).
