Reading Backwards

Book reviews by your favorite Git.

Reward Your Git

with one comment

This Git is in college. Not only does she not have time, she also doesn’t have any money. That means no advertising, and a limited pool of reading material.

But, if you love your Git very much, you can do one of two things to help her out.

1. Spread the word. Link to ReadingBackwards. Tell a friend. Although I can’t promise cash prizes, I will do a reciprocal linkage to other people doing book-related things. And I might be persuaded to make graphics for people who are particularly lovely.

2. Gift a book to the Git. Through the wonders of the Internet, I can now make a list of books I want, and you can send them to me, without either of us putting our real info out there for stalkers and spybots to find.  It’s a great system. And I love doing the Used Book thing, so you can even save some cash that way! If something you think I should read isn’t on the list, leave me a comment and I’ll add it.

People who buy me things will receive things in return. I’ll make a page for Fantabulous People, where I’ll plug all your stuff. If you’re book-related, I guarantee a link on the main template. And everyone gets a perdy graphic (sized for your preference). I also promise to review the book within 6 months* of its arrival, and will email you when the post goes up. Since you’ve probably read the book yourself, I’ll even throw in some bonus comments for you, cuz there’s nothing like talking about books you both know.

*I say 6 months because I will only read books I’m in the mood for. Have you ever tried to read a book when the time just wasn’t right? It’s hell, and you get nothing from it.

Amazon Wishlist:
So, be good to your Git! Keep her in business!

  1. You should definitely read the Books of Bayern by Shannon Hale: The Goose Girl, a retelling of the classic fairy tale, Enna Burning, simply fabuous, and River Secrets, a murder mystery with a twist.

    They are all young adult.
