scheduled, with my review added.

Nora St. Laurent said...

posted and reviewed - yes it was difficult from a mothers point of view on all fronts.

RAnn said...

I'm scheduled. My review is already up. I see folks are looking at it from a mother's POV. I've sort of gone that direction with my discussion question. BTW, that's something I'm trying to make my blog different from everyone else's. With each book review, I'm doing a discussion question and I'm inviting everyone to come discuss! http://rannthisthat.blogspot.com/2009/01/my-review-this-side-of-heaven.html

Karla @ Ramblin' Roads said...

I didn't ever receive this one. (I thought I signed up for it... but maybe not.) I was going to post anyway, but I see there's no first chapter, and since I don't have a review I guess I won't post it after all.

Just to everyone know, I tried to get the first chapter for the Karen Kingsbury book, but they only gave me the widget. If you click the open book widget, it takes you to the first chapter. Unfortunately, it is an extra click for your readers. :-(

Donna said...

I set it to post.

ForstRose said...

Scheduled for Fri morn. However only had time for premade HTML and having issues with computer randomly rebooting so not sure if there will be problems with the post. Will check and fix if needed on Sunday when I can get to an internet connection again.
