These Days Are Ours: Grab It While It's Hot!

Why, hello there! Things have been mighty quiet around here this January. I've been having a blast teaching a new information literacy course I designed around documentary film in the inaugural J-term (January term), but cramming a semester's worth of reading, assignments and films into three short weeks has proved as exhausting as it is exhilarating. I've spent my weekends lounging on the couch watching television and grading papers rather than reading blogs and writing reviews. I have been reading a bit thanks to my public transportation commute to work. Plus I still have reviews from books read in 2012 to review, and things should be back to normal around here next week when spring semester begins and my teaching schedule shifts from twenty classroom hours a week back to two. I'm also planning a 'Best of J-term' documentary post for those of you who love documentary films too.

In the meantime, I have to tell you about this amazing deal on my favorite read of 2012. You might recall be gushing about how much I adored Michelle Haimoff's debut novel These Days Are Ours. I loved it so much I gave it six stars out of five (something I've only done three other times.) If you haven't read it yet, you're in luck! This amazing novel is now on sale as an e-book fro $1.99 for the next two weeks. Grab it while you can.

  3. I tried to buy it, but it isn't even available as an ebook in the UK :-( Hopefully it will make it over here one day.

    1. Boo! Jackie, I hope it does make its way to the UK (and maybe even onto a future Orange Prize longlist!)

  7. Thanks for letting us know about the sale! I couldn't buy it on Amazon, since I don't have Kindle, but B&N usually has the same sales and it did this time as well :-) I was planning to get it from the library, but how not to buy it when it costs so little.
