I'm back!

I'm back! Did you miss me?

It's been quiet around Alison's Book Marks, and I'm sorry about that. I took a little vacation with my family this past week. We went to warmer weather, where I was able to sit in a lounge chair by the pool with my books -- my absolute favorite place to read! We also took a little side trip to Disney World, where I neither sat nor read. There is no lounging at Disney.

While I was away, I also got to watch the YANKEES win the WORLD SERIES!!!

When I wasn't watching baseball or sampling the beers and wines of the world in Epcot, I read about several strong women (Including one of my favorites, Stephanie Plum!), which you will hear about in my reviews, which are coming. I promise! More reviews are coming!! I actually have about 6 books sitting in my "to be reviewed" pile and they're all giving me the stink-eye. Unfortunately, none of the books I read while on vacation have made it to my Top 10 List of 2009. Very sad, I know. I hope that doesn't discourage you from reading the reviews...and telling me where I went wrong.

While I catch up on my review-writing, feel free to take a look at past reviews of books that ARE on my Top 10 List of 2009 (a list I will post in full in December).

The Shadow of the Wind by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Her Fearful Symmetry by Audrey Niffenegger
The Help by Kathryn Stockett
The Book Thief by Markus Zusak

Thank you for your patience!!

Wow, what a vaca!!!! How fun that must have been to see the Yankees! Glad you are back safe and sound!

Oh, Christine, I WISH I were at the game! The last time I saw the Yankees win the World Series in person was in 1999 when the Yanks swept the Braves. Great game...cold, but great!

Thanks for the welcome back!

Three of your top ten are also on my top ten list, which means that I MUST read Her Fearful Symmetry! Looking forward to your future posts!
