I Never Met a Magazine Subscription I Didn’t Like by Deb Jess

I subscribe to WAY too many magazines. When some hit my mailbox, I will trample everything in my path to read them: Country Gardens and Organic Gardening are the biggest culprits. They are the glossy, professionally-bound crack of my magazine world. I devour them in an hour, drooling over the lush garden photos, dog-earing pages I wish to revisit, dreaming of the day when the pages will be scratch-and-sniff. Because…

I Said CARE! by Deb Kristy

What I’m reading now? Well, I’m reading a lot now. I’m always reading a lot. I read the back of the Pantene bottle while I’m washing my hair; I read the toothpaste label while I’m brushing my teeth; I read license plates while I’m driving. What? Anyway, as far as books go, I usually have several going at once. One is always on my bathroom counter. I hold it open…

A Little Tuesday Book Review by Deb Tish

Because I discuss my favorite literary characters in the P.S. pages of my novel, TOWN HOUSE, I’m veering off topic slightly today. I going to discuss Barbara Gowdy’s HELPLESS – which is so good it took over my entire weekend. Gowdy takes on a subject I never thought I could read about – child abduction. A Toronto mother is raising her exceptionally beautiful daughter on her own, oblivious to the fact…

My Side of the Bed by Deb Kristy

I can’t do it. Everyone else’s posts have been so eloquent, so persuasive and passionate in their offerings, and I find myself reaching, futilely, for something that hasn’t been said, some book that will prove my devotion to the form, or at least to a specific writer or genre. But I cast back over the books I read in 2006 and cannot remember them properly, only fleeting impressions remain. I…

Wait No More by Deb Mia

Like my fellow Debs, I read a lot. A ton. And very quickly, mostly because quick is all I have these days. Caveat: I may be quick, but I’m not always timely (also like my fellow Debs – Debs of a feather flock together, and all that), meaning that books released in 2006 may not cross my desk until, oh, 2008 or so. So the title I am about to…

Six I Read in ’06 by Deb Jennifer

Okay, I have to start off by saying it was way too much pressure to pick one book to call a favorite.  I’m terrible at even the most trivial decisions, never mind one as loaded as this.  So I went back over my reading list (yes, I keep a list because when you have a memory as terrible as mine, it’s a necessity) and picked an assortment of my favorites. …

So Many Books by Deb Tish

Apparently I’m a book skank. I loved so many books in 2006 I cannot bring myself to choose a favorite. The sad thing is, I could have loved so many more, had I made the time.  So, in lieu of flogging one true love, we’re going to hold a “So Many Books” award ceremony for my most beloved nightstand darlings. These books may or may not have been published in 2006, my self-centered…

Behind the Times By Deb Anna

I’m horrible about reading, by which I mean that I read about .000001% of the number of books I’d like to. And I can’t really blame it on my work schedule. My friend Melissa de la Cruz, who literally pumps out something like 10 books a year (not to mention, recently, a baby, and, um, milk) is a treasure trove of knowledge on current books. Ask her what she’s reading…
