Random Tuesday: A Read-Along and Giveaway Winners


The read-along of Blackout by Connie Willis is now starting and will continue through the end of July. It is co-hosted by Carrie at Books and Movies and Avis at She Reads and Reads.

Connie Willis is one of my favorite authors. Blackout is both historical and science fiction: Oxford Historians travel back in time to World War II.

Connie Willis returns with a stunning, enormously entertaining novel of time travel, war, and the deeds—great and small—of ordinary people who shape history. In the hands of this acclaimed storyteller, the past and future collide—and the result is at once intriguing, elusive, and frightening.

It’s not too late to join in. Discussions begin July 9th. Read the announcement post and sign-up at Books and Movies.

Giveaway Winners

Col of Col Reads was the winner of the Literary Blog Hop Giveaway and will receive a copy of Doc by Mary Doria Russell.

Anna M. and Teawench were the winners of Prophecy by S. J. Harris.



Really Random Tuesday is hosted on random Tuesdays by Suko at Suko’s Notebook. It’s a way to post odds and ends–announcements, musings, quotes–any blogging and book-related things you can think of.
