Blogging for Books

Waterbrook Multonomah just invited me to start reviewing books for them through BloggingforBooks.com. I am so excited. I just requested a copy of The Charlatan’s Boy by Jonathan Rogers. Listen to some of these chapter titles: Chapter 1: In which I jump out of a box and play the Wild Man of the Feechiefen Swamp. Chapter 2:In which we get out of the feechie trade and I begin my formal education and Chapter 11: In which we meet the Blossom of Bonifay, the Chalkboard Bully, and the world’s most beautiful eighty-two-year-old. Here is the description from the publisher’s website:

“As far back as he can remember, the orphan Grady has tramped from village to village in the company of a huckster named Floyd. With his adolescent accomplice, Floyd perpetrates a variety of hoaxes and flimflams on the good citizens of the Corenwald frontier, such as the Ugliest Boy in the World act.
“It’s a hard way to make a living, made harder by the memory of fatter times when audiences thronged to see young Grady perform as “The Wild Man of the Feechiefen Swamp.” But what can they do? Nobody believes in feechies anymore.
“When Floyd stages an elaborate plot to revive Corenwalders’ belief in the mythical swamp-dwellers known as the feechiefolk, he overshoots the mark. Floyd’s Great Feechie Scare becomes widespread panic. Eager audiences become angry mobs, and in the ensuing chaos, the Charlatan’s Boy discovers the truth that has evaded him all his life—and will change his path forever.”

For sale

Indulge me for a moment while I engage in some shameless self-promotion! I have added a couple links on my sidebar.One is for cash4books where you can sell some of your books. The other is for my half.com store, I would love it if you could take a look. If you seem something you want, awesome! If not, please share my blog with others who may want to make a purchase.
Also I have just a few items that I cannot list on half.com.
My Calendar Book by Christian Light Pub. Though I have submitted info so that they could add it to their “catalog”, half.com is still not recognizing the ISBN.
The other two are too old to have ISBNs
The Roll of Drums by Lucille Wallower (1945) fair condition, the binding is starting to unravel.
Elementary Music Music Education Series (1923) good condition

For these 3 books I will take any reasonable offer! I accept paypal!
