UPDATES and Giveaways!

Hello fellow book lovers! I just wanted to step in and say we are indeed still here.. but obviously neglected the HF-Connection this month in favor of real life and our own personal blogs! Summer is coming to an end, and fall is around the corner already!! I hope everyone has had a safe and happy summer.

Just to update you where we have been, Michelle is co-hosting the Wolf Hall Read Along, feel free to jump in during the conversation posts at any time, even if you've read it a few years ago!

Find more information on Michelle's blog, The True Book Addict and at her co-host Kai's blog at Fiction State of Mind.  The read-a-long will run from August 4 - September 15.  You can find out all the details by visiting the Schedule post HERE.  I hope you will join in!

There are also two very fun giveaways going on at Burton Book Review.. one is a Ten book giveaway of some fabulous Historical Fiction titles! You have to hurry though, because it ends later today on 8/30/2012.

And to celebrate the US release of Elizabeth Chadwick's A Place Beyond Courage, there is a book giveaway for both A Place Beyond Courage AND The Greatest Knight... enter at the book review link here. That one ends 9/3/2012.

Any ideas for a future read along? Some that have been swirling in my head are Katherine by Anya Seton, Here Be Dragons by Sharon Kay Penman, and The Crown by Nancy Bilyeau. And always in the back of my mind are titles by Jean Plaidy aka Victoria Holt aka Phillipa Carr... what are you guys in the mood for? I am thinking this would be sometime around October depending on your input! See you in the blogosphere!
