Well, I had a lot of organizational matters to take care of this weekend: Poetry Friday host schedule, blogroll update, etc. But then the sun came out! And I left the computer behind. No worries, though. Rain is rolling in tomorrow and I promise I'll update when I'm stuck inside again.
In the meantime, here are this weekend's reviews:
Mary Harris Russell reviews five new books including Jeanne Birdsall's The Penderwicks on Gardam Street for the Chicago Tribune.
And, speaking of Jeanne Birdall, Cecilia Goodnow profiles Birdsall for The Seattle Times.
