    Annie Barrows on literary meandering

    Friday, July 17th, 2009

    Guernsey author Annie Barrows has written a guest blog for about “literary meandering”, the path that leads us from one book to another.

    Check it out here, and let us know what you think! What was the sequence of books that brought you to Guernsey?

    Virtual book club! First question!

    Friday, July 10th, 2009

    A reader posted a comment to one of our posts that got us thinking–why not pose the question to everyone? Think of this as an online book club discussion. From time to time, we’ll post questions, you weigh in with your thoughts!

    This one comes to us from Debbie Hernick, who said:

    I absolutely LOVED this book! My book group is discussing it next week and everyone is very excited. I have one question- why are there no letters from Sophie? Juliet references Sophie’s letters but the authors never show them to the reader. Any thoughts?

    What do you think? Do you see a reason the authors would have made this choice?

    Send a letter!

    Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

    Many readers have been inspired to send their own letters after reading Guernsey. Written correspondence is, after all, the backbone of the novel.

    It is in this spirit that we bring you the Send a Letter feature on Why not use it to send a reminder to your book club? A book recommendation to your best friend? A note to your sister?

    The possibilities are endless! And it’s definitely what Juliet would do.
