Jill's Book Bag #2 - July 2007


With great pleasure and some bloggy excitement all rolled into one, I am announcing Jill's Book Bag for July. First, though, I want to send kudos to Jules at Everyday Mommy for my neat Book Club button up there. Thanks!
Next, the simple rules:
1. Leave a comment here if you'd like to enter
2. Give me a little linky love and link back to this post on your own blog
3. The winner will be drawn randomly at noon on Saturday, July 21.
My choice this month is I Know This Much is True, by Wally Lamb.
I keep a reading log and made a note that I completed this book on August 17, 1998... nearly nine year ago! At 900 pages, it's not a quick read, nor necessarily easy, but it's a riveting story of brotherly love, a family's secrets, and redemption.
I hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.
Thanks for joining in this month.


Leah in Iowa :

Well, here I am ~ and first in line! Doesn't say much for me, does it? =) HeeHee

Momma Roar :

I love the book club button - very cute!

900 pages...wow!

justabeachkat :

I love the button too and I love books and contest. So...here I am to enter and hopefully win this time. Thanks for the fun.


Steph :

I love to read and I keep, not a journal, but a list of all the books I read each year!I mainly do it because I read so many, I sometimes can't remember if I read a particular book or not!
I am new to blogging so I am going to attempt to put a link to you at my place! It might take a day or two!

Cynthia :

Please enter me! I love books! Will put a link on my site. Thanks for having this contest.

Lori :

A reading journal - what a great idea! I think that is really cool. Do you review every book you have read in your journal?

workinthatpreppy :

Jill, don't forget the monogrammed bag for your tote. I will put a pic of one on my sidebar if anyone wants to see. www.workinthatpreppy.blogspot.com

Jody :

I can't see the button. :)

I've already read this but I'll give you the love- just keep me out of the drawing.

I should keep a journal of what I read. I recently read two books that (I realized early into them) I had read before.. Of course I enjoyed them the first time, so I went ahead and finished them...

jilly :

Oh I am in! I love to read and love book clubs! I love Wally Lamb too!

Sandra :

Loved this book, read it a while ago and really enjoyed it.

Hope you're having a wonderful weekend,

Vader's Mom :

Please throw my name in the hat! I saw the results of the last one and I want to win even more now!!

Dianne :

Hey Jill. I passed on the Blogger Reflection Award last night, so you need to check it out...there are a few words there about you as well. Thanks again!

workinthatpreppy :

jill, i am still having trouble with your e-mail bouncing back..let me know if you still want the bag for the giveaway. it is on my sidebar but doesn't link back to your site. has your address though:)

Jillian, Inc :

Lori- Regarding my journal... it's mostly a listing (date completed, title, author) of books but I also make notes about those that really stand out (like this book). It also includes good quotes from books, notes on authors and a whole section for "books I want to read". I've been keeping the journal since Jan 1998.

DeeDee :

Hi Jill- I found "linky love" at South Breeze Farm! Count me in! The book sounds fascinating and the bag...well, I am all about the bag! What fun!

Canadian Bird :

I'm a Christian women's bookclub leader & I LOVE bags...let alone books! Count me in!!!
