Weekly Geeks #2

Time for Weekly Geeks #2! This week, Dewey has challenged the Weekly Geeks to borrow an idea (with permission, of course) from Darla at Books and Other Thoughts and link reviews of other book bloggers to our reviews.

This will allow everyone to get a variety of opinions on the same book! Sounds like a great idea to me. So for this week's assignment, I'll be cruising participant's blogs and leaving links to my reviews and if you have reviewed any of the books below, leave me a link to your review in the comments to this post and I'll link it to my review.

Hi Katherine -

These are a couple of reviews we have in common:
http://blog.mawbooks.com/2008/01/20/the-book-thief-by-markus-zusak/
http://blog.mawbooks.com/2008/04/27/number-the-stars-by-lois-lowry/

I've already linked you in a database I've created of book review links here: http://bookreviews.mawbooks.com

And why I just called you Katherine I have no idea! I know your name is KRISTI!!!

Kristi said...

Mary - that's OK. We don't all like the same book ;>). Notice I was a little luke-warm on Twilight as well - and I haven't picked up (nor do I plan to) others in the series ;>).

Nadia - Thanks!

Maw Books - Thanks for the links ;>).

I'm off to search for more reviews in common - Weekly Geeks is taking some time this week, but I think it'll be worth it in the end!

Hi! I received your comment today & will be adding your links tonight - I just have one request. You've linked my library entries, not my reviews. Could you change the links to the actual review posts? Those will stay forever, but I can't say the same about the Now Reading plugin that provides the library entries. Thanks.

Here they are:
http://www.inthelouvre.org/bookmobile/john-dunning-booked-to-die/
http://www.inthelouvre.org/bookmobile/john-dunning-the-bookmans-wake/
http://www.inthelouvre.org/bookmobile/john-dunning-the-bookmans-promise/

The Twilight review isn't yet posted, as I read it for a bookclub & I don't make those posts public until the discussion comes up... :p

Thanks!

Kristi said...

Hi Michelle. Done. That should point people in the right direction ;>).

Jeane said...

Hi I just found your blog. We have one review in common, The Polysyllabic Spree. I'll link to yours, too!

Kristi said...

Thanks, Jeane. I'll link yours up now.
