I've Been Tagged!!

I won a book worm award by my friend Marie at Boston Bibliophile. I also was asked to do my first meme. Sine this is a Jewish blog I am going to do only subjects that deal with Jewish books. The closest Jewish book to me is what I am reading now.
Hurry Down Sunshine by Michael Greenberg. Turn to page 56,5th sentence:
When her turn comes she stands without difficulty, swallows her meds , chats with the nurse. Gently coaxingly the nurse suggests she try walking to her room on her own.
On hearing this, the woman's legs immediately turn to jelly and she slumps back into her wheelchair, her head in her hands in a gesture of sorrow so complete it seems to obey it's own natural law.

Dear Susan,

Please let me send you a copy of SARAH’S KEY by Tatiana de Rosnay for review on your blog. This book has been earning rave reviews from the Jewish reading community. I can’t help but think the readers of your blog would be interested in hearing about this incredible book.

SARAH’S KEY by Tatiana de Rosnay is a beautiful and haunting story that brings to life the too often forgotten events in Paris during World War II known as the V’el D’hiv roundup. An astounding novel, SARAH’S KEY has won the hearts of book clubs, Holocaust survivors, authors from Augusten Burroughs to Jenna Blum and the Jewish Book Council. In fact, the Jewish Book Council sent the author on a national book fair tour to JCCs in the US and audiences across the states were blown away by hearing Tatiana speak about her experience researching and writing about these events and the responses she has gotten from readers.

Sarah’s Key debuted at #20 on the NEW YORK TIMES Bestseller List on October 26th and has remained on the list ever since. The books have been flying off the shelves in bookstores---selling over 1,000 copies a day.

I can’t say it enough---give me a chance to let this book grab your heart as well. I promise you won’t regret it.

All best,
Sarah Goldstein
St. Martin's Press

Dear Susan,

Congratulations on your award! Both your blogs are nicely done.

I have a book you might be interested in by Jerry Pollock. Jerry has written over 75 scientific publications and his debut novel, "Messiah Interviews" is now available.

In this book, the protagonist must satisfy his biblical interviewers―the angel Gabriel, Methuselah, Chanoch, Seth, King David, Moses, Jacob, Abraham, and the prophet Isaiah―and prove that he has the wisdom and character to be the Messiah. As the tale unfolds, the challenges of the interviews go beyond the protagonist and become relevant to the lives of each one of us.

If you're interested in reviewing this book in January, please contact me at

Thanks. I look forward to hearing from you.

Wishing you a blessed holiday season.

All my best,
