roundup2 This was a week of great blog posts and lots of books that I now want to read! I don’t think my shelves are going to hold all of them though! (insert plea for donation of lots of bookshelves)Well let’s get on to the goodies! I can't wait to share them with you!

Devourer of Books reviewed The Sonnets by Warrick Collins. In his book Collins explores what was behind Shakespeare's sonnets, by imagining what was going on in Shakespeare’s life at the time he wrote them. Devourer of books says

“This is a very quick read and truly feels as if it is a snapshot of Shakespeare’s life, it could almost be an excerpt from his lost diary, if it were only written in diary format.”

Even though she wasn’t fond of all the poetry in the book, I think this sounds like a really interesting book and I’ll be adding it to my TBR list.

Beth Fish Reads reviews More Home Cooking: A Writer Returns to the Kitchen which was written by Laurie Colwin. Beth tells us

“Colwin conveys her understanding of food and family, but throughout we are also treated to her sense of humor.”

This isn’t necessarily a cookbook as much as it is a collection of stories about families, love and their relationship to food.

OK I know you’ve all seen the commercials for this, or something very much like it. The Slanket is reviewed and modeled by Trish from Hey Lady Whatcha’ Reading"?. Beth is also offering a giveaway of a slanket, so hurry over. Don’t miss seeing the glamour shots of Trish in her slanket!

Fans of the Twilight series of books will want to check out Bookroom Reviews to find out some of the latest news about the new movie coming out later this year.

Amy at My Friend Amy wrote a really great review of the book “Winter in Madrid by C.J. Sansom. If you’re a fan of historical fiction this might be just the book that you’ve been looking for. Amy says..

“ this is heavy reading. Even so, it is recommended

She also has some cautions at the end of her review that you might want to check out.

Bermuda Onion has a wonderful review of a book I just finished last night – Very Valentine by Adriana Triagini. I thought this book was wonderful! BermudaOnion says of the book…

No one can write about families the way Trigiani can. She reveals the love, frustration and loyalty that all families share.”

Wendi of Wendi's Book Corner had too much fun this week reviewing Confetti Cakes For Kids by Elisa Strauss with Christie Matheson. Stop by and check out what they whipped up at her house.

Every year we lose more people to AIDS. It hasn't disappeared and it's not going away anytime soon. I urge you to seek out and support your local AIDS Organizations. Encourage everyone you know to practice safe sex and to get tested once a year. Even if you don't think you are at risk, get tested. I didn't think I was at risk either, and I almost died before I was diagnosed.
