The evil cabal of well-read bloggers over at the Litblog Co-Op made their inaugural selection today:
The Litblog Co-op is very pleased to announce its inaugural Read This! Selection: Case Histories by Kate Atkinson.
In the weeks ahead, we're planning a variety of posts around this book, including appearances by Kate Atkinson, Reagan Arthur (the book's editor at Little, Brown) and others still to be announced. (See the post below for additional details.) But first, here's LBC nominator Lizzie Skurnick (The Old Hag) on why she nominated Case Histories:
I've heard lots of good things about this book and may have already told more important literary types at cocktail parties and readings that I've already read it and simply adored it and was seriously considering sending the author a fan letter, but the fact is I haven't, though I intend to and will be interested to see what goes on over at the Co-op over the next couple weeks. Should be interesting. (Recent book I lied and said I read: Inventing God by Nicholas Mosely, but I do own it, though I never intend to read it...it just seems, I dunno, like a book I can talk about without actually reading.)
