Other voices, other blogs – conclusion

[Click here for Part One of this post.]

Thanks to Bish’s Beat for spotlighting my review of Peter Turnbull’s Turning Point. (More cute grandkids here, too!)

And speaking of Peter Turnbull – which I do, at every opportunity – another link to the above review was provided by Donna at Big Beat from Badsville. I was delighted to discover this blog, which focuses with energy and enthusiasm on Scottish crime fiction.

Shelf Love: I deeply appreciate the sentiments expressed by Teresa concerning a passion for reading. Needless to say – but I’ll say it anyway – I share them wholeheartedly. If you scroll further down the lovely Sunday Salon post, you’ll find “Notes from the Reading Life.”  Under “Books To Remember,” Teresa cites my review of Zeitoun.

Teresa has also linked to Jonathan Veitch’s convocation address at Occidental College. It is well worth reading.

In July, artist Nancy Moksovitz recommended The Gardner Heist by Ulrich Boser. She also linked to my review of that fascinating chronicle.

Once again- thanks to the bloggers who have recently linked to Books to the Ceiling. As I’ve mentioned before, writing this blog has proved to be much harder and more challenging than I had originally anticipated, so it is very rewarding to receive praise and recognition, especially from those who are themselves gifted and perceptive writers.

    Thanks for the shout-out! That Veitch address was amazing, wasn’t it?

      You’re more than welcome, Teresa, and thanks so much for posting the Veitch speech. It was great!
