I inherited a set of 43 diaries that span from 1909 – 1969. They were given to my grandmother Ruth Ferris Thompson and she passed them down to me.
I started re-reading the World War ll journals and found them extremely worthy of note on many levels. I realized how little I knew about the events surrounding World War ll and what the Londoner’s in particular had to endure. These journals are a combination of the historical and the exceptionally personal.
I thought that others may also find them intriguing and started a blog. In doing so I received reactions from people from around the world and this inspired me to publish them in book form for all to enjoy.
I am including the link to the book and to my blog.
If you are a blogger (required), or have a website:
Welcome to Book Blogs! You’ve definitely come to the right place if you want to network with other book lovers and strut your reviewing stuff. Yippee!
I’d like to share a couple of awesome opportunities with you. First, Novel Publicity is currently recruiting bloggers for a gigantic holiday book bash. The prizes are insane and include $3,500 in cash, 3 Kindle Fires, 35 autographed books, and free eBooks for any participants who would like them. Sign-up and info is HERE
The other super cool thing I’d like to share with you is news of the ReaderShip. This is a great site for book lovers, because every single week there is a free book available for download. This week it’s the paranormal YA novel, Forbidden Mind by Kimberly Kinrade, and next week it’ll be something new.

I'll be happy to follow your blog if you follow mine!

Book Blogs is by far one of the best sites I've come across on the internet. Especially as a writer trying to promote your work and learn about new books, connect with other writers, what better place then someone else's blog. I write two Blogs - The Choice of Giving and Illusions. Don't hesitate to email me, my contact information is on both blogs, right at the top. And I too like IT by Stephen King.
