The Sunday Salon -- Bloggiesta Update and Awesome News

So this weekend I've been pecking away at Bloggiesta, and while I'm not accomplishing as much as I'd like, I have managed to get the bulk of my three reviews written, as well as a few details on projects. I did take a break to watch several episodes of the second season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles which is so achingly strong in these last episodes I know I'll feel a sense of loss when it's over.

So I hope to get a bunch more done today--like those stinking RSS buttons! And a few more posts written. But really, I have many different days in my week that are like mini-bloggiestas.

In other news, Beth Kephart has revealed the cover for You Are My Only, her new book coming from Egmont in October. Personally, I love it!* Read more on Beth's blog.

You Are My Only

In the Lunch Community, I asked the question, Will the Physical Book Go Away Completely? Come join in the discussion!

At the Underground Lit Society, we shared our most recent podcast--a personal favorite--ZOMBIES! I hope you'll check it out since it talked with both Mira Grant, author of Feed, and Jesse Petersen, author of Married with Zombies and Flip This Zombie.

And just a reminder, tomorrow at 1 PM EST, 10 AM PST Deborah of Books, Movies, Chinese Food and I will be on Twitter hosting a chat about Christian fiction. We're really hopeful a lot of people will show up for the chat and engage in honest respectful dialogue. Even if you don't see any problems with Christian fiction as it is, we encourage you to come and listen. Deborah recently wrote a very brave and honest post about how she feels about Christian fiction and Hannah of Wordlily also shared some thoughts. I've heard rumblings that a few more bloggers might post their own thoughts as well. I hope they do and also join in on our Twitter chat!

Coming this week:
More thoughts on Christian fiction, reviews of Never Been Kissed by Melody Carlson, Drought by Pam Bachorz, and the return of The Vampire Diaries, plus much more!

Have a wonderful Sunday! If you're bloggiesta'ing, reading, or doing something else, I hope it's wonderful!
