Welcome to the Ultimate Blog Party 2011!

Ultimate Blog Party 2011

This is a great way to introduce your blog and to get to know other bloggers! Just click on the badge for more information.

If you're visiting Cindy's Book Club for the first time, here's some info:

Hi, I'm Cindy Swanson, and I'm PASSIONATE about books and reading!

This blog, Cindy's Book Club, used to be attached to an actual book club. For a few months, a few years ago, I hosted a book club as part of my radio job with 101QFL. The book club was eventually discontinued, but this blog site remained. Since I was spending so much time on my main blog, Notes in the Key of Life, blogging about books and reading, I decided to designate this space for that purpose.

Here's where I put my book reviews, book discussions, and pretty much anything to do with books and reading. Sometimes I bring some of my older author interviews (which are transcribed--not in audio form) to this blog. Those books are no longer new--in some cases they go back as far as 2003, when my other blog began--but they are certainly worthy of some new exposure!

I also review new books, of course--and I also use this blog to link to reviews on other blogs and sites, so let me know if you have a book/reading blog and you'd like some free publicity. Thank you soooo much for stopping by! I do hope you'll be back.

Do look around, check out the archives, join me in a nice cup of tea... ...and remember...

Hi! I'm stopping by from the UBP - I'm #73 (Being Made New - on the Christian list. Very nice to get to know a bit about you - I wish I had time to read nearly as much as you seem to! - and I'd be honored if you would make it to my place this week. :^)

I think that is really wonderful to be so interested in books and reading. I feel like, besides my schoolbooks, the depth of mine goes to Horton Hatches an Egg. :)

Hope you have a blast "partying" this week and will take a minute to stop by and say hi when you get the chance.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. It really is a small world. I grew up in Beloit, WI and grew up listening to you on WQFL. When I saw the name Cindy Swanson I thought no way, but you are one and the same!

I'm so glad to have discovered your book blog! I agree, there can never be too many books. If only there were more time in the day - for reading and writing!

Thank you for stopping by my blog, Sweet Blessings. I hope you come back to visit sometime.

I am a fellow book fanatic! :) I am always reading a devotional and of course the Bible, but I am a total sucker for a good love story. I read Christian fiction. Janette Oke is my all time favorite author, and I have read every single one of her books. I also am addicted to the Love Inspired novels.
