DarcyO, the randomly chosen winner of The Iguana Tree by Michel Stone, a novel about a young family who emigrates from Mexico to America equipped only with the dream of a more prosperous life. If you didn't win this beautifully written novel, please don't despair, because I have other terrific book giveaways on the right side of my blog, so be sure to scroll down and take a look (if you're on a mobile device, you'll need to switch to the web version to see them).
While many people seem to hate Monday, at least it's a day that's mentioned frequently, even if it's in a begrudging manner. Wednesday, also called "Hump Day", is mid-week, so it's referred to with relief, while Thursday, because of its proximity to Friday, is associated with that favored day. Friday and Saturday garner a lot of happy attention, and Sunday is seen as a day to relax. But what about Tuesday? Tuesday is not exactly the most popular day of the week. Poor Tuesday! I thought maybe I could "help" Tuesday by finding some books with Tuesday in the title. The first one I thought of was Tuesdays with Morrie: An Old Man, a Young Man, and Life's Greatest Lesson by Mitch Albom, my introduction to this author. A quick Google search helped me to find other books with Tuesday in the title:
No Tildes on Tuesday by Dr. Cherrye S. Vasquez, a book for children
Tuesday by David Weisner, a picture book for children
Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him by Bret Witter
What other books have Tuesday in the title?
Recently I updated my Memes page, which is a large collection of book-related memes. If you're interested in learning more about these memes, or even memes in general, please take a look. Also, if you have a meme that is not included in my list, let me know. I would be happy to add it to my page, if it's suitable.
Appearing on random Tuesdays, Really Random Tuesday is a way to post odds and ends--announcements, musings, quotes, photos--any blogging and book-related things you can think of. Often, I announce the winners of my book giveaways in this Tuesday meme. If you're inspired by this idea, feel free to copy the button and use it on your own blog. Please leave a link in the comments if you’re participating and I'll add it to this post. Thanks for reading!
