Celebrate the Author: January Links

It's time to "celebrate" January authors! Have you read your "January" book for the Celebrate the Author challenge? If you have then please leave either a link or a mini-review in the comments. If you haven't there is still plenty of time left in the month! Feel free to come back anytime in the month of January (and yes, even on February 1), and leave a comment updating me on your progress. As the links start to come in, I will update the body of this post to reflect what you're reading and have a "round-up" of sorts. (Think of a cross between a book carnival and poetry friday). I'm looking forward to reading your reviews! With a little over 40 participants, it should be a lot of fun to see what gets read :) (In other news, I think some spammers are using the Mr. Linky.) In case you are wondering, the challenge remains open to new participants through the last week of January.

Becky, my book wasn't by Virginia and Vanessa; it was about them and how their lives were influenced by their childhood summers at St Ives.
