Really Random Tuesday #29: Book Winner and The Lake

Please congratulate Zibilee from Raging Bibliomania, the winner of Thoughts Without Cigarettes by novelist Oscar Hijuelos. I think you'll enjoy reading this thoughtful book, Zibilee. Congratulations!

Thanks to everyone who entered this giveaway. I have many other current book giveaways listed on the right side of my blog, so be sure to take a look and enter the ones that interest you.




********************

Other bookish "news": I won four (!) books from a thousand Books with Quotes. Thank you, BookQuoter! I'm currently reading The Lake by Banana Yoshimoto for Dolce Bellezza's Japanese Literature Challenge 5 (behold the gorgeous button, below). But why should you care what I'm reading? After all, I'm just a two-bit book blogger. Well, hopefully my review of The Lake will give you an idea of what the book's about and whether this book interests you. And Melville House Publishing generously gave me an extra copy of the book to give away, so please stay tuned for my review and giveaway.
