Wish List

While we are on hiatus, I encourage you to check out our archived reviews which are linked over on the right side of the blog.  Rather than attempt to be up-to-the-minute newsworthy, I have instead always hoped Bookie Woogie's greatest value would reside in its Archive -- a great big pool to dip into -- a lasting resource for recommended reading.  Right now there are 75 reviews and 8 interviews, all with books we highly recommend!  Are any new to you?

In addition, here is a list of books we are eagerly anticipating!  Some have recently been released and we love them, some have been released but we still need to find them, and many are not due out for months to come.  But whether we've seen them yet or not, these are all books on our radar -- we hope you keep your eyes open for them too!

Thank you for leaving the list while you're away. I LOVED Chuckling Ducklings the minute I saw it, and that was before I saw you'd written it, Aaron. You Are What You Eat and Animal House, and several others caught my attention too and I will be checking them out. Have a good time away. We look forward to your return.

Oh my gosh I love you guys! I was just sharing your site with a pal and gushing about your family trading cards tradition when I came across a shout-out to my new book DOTTY! So excited to share it with you guys... I think DOTTY will fit right in at your house.
