Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! Here’s to a great year of reading for your book group in 2011.

I am writing this newsletter from San Diego, where I am in town for the American Library Association’s Midwinter Conference. Here I have had a chance to meet many new authors and catch up with ones I already know, as well as chat with librarians from around the country. The enthusiasm of this group always energizes me. Last night, I was at dinner with five librarians, and we bantered about books and authors all evening. By the time you read this, the Youth Media Awards will have been announced, which are the equivalent of the Oscars of children’s book publishing. I have a number of friends on various selection committees, and the excitement building about these awards all week has made this conference even more fun!

Just before this trip, we were on the Outer Banks for the holiday, where we had six inches of snow, which made me look out the window more than once and wonder if we were in Colorado or at the beach. Snow there is a rare occurrence, and it gave us some nice photo ops as well as a chance to drive in the snow on the 4x4 beach. I also had the opportunity to drop by Duck’s Cottage in the town of Duck. There, Jamie Layton has created a wall in the back of the store where she announces what book groups in the area are reading. You can see a photo above.

Seeing these lists reminds me that I have to remind YOU about our Share Your 2010 Picks contest, where your group could win a set of "book club perfect" titles in exchange for sharing what books you read in 2010. Read the full details and the 33 titles up for grabs here, or go straight to the entry form here. It’s sooooo easy to enter. You just need to tell us what your group read all year! The contest will end on January 31st; the winners and the prize they receive will be selected at random.

If you were wondering what I read over the holidays, then check out my “What I Read on My Christmas Vacation” blog here.

In December, a colleague gave me an iPad as a present, which was a really lovely surprise. I liked the concept of a device that was more than a reader since I like the idea of portable multimedia, given the way I travel. And since I love color, I of course loved the idea of four-color. My younger son got me set up with the “necessary and essential” apps and acted as my tutor. Cory would give me homework each day, such as “move these apps” and “download something new.” It was pretty amusing; I “flunked” more than once since I had a lot going on in my life in December, and tech concentration was not high on that list. Now I have a much better handle on this. I watched a movie for a project that I am working on. I logged onto Epicurious’s app to make a number of recipes for holiday dinners. I listened to music. And yes, I even read a book on it! And here was the best part about that: I like to knit and read at the same time. It was nice to find it was easier to click to the next page than it was to turn a page in a physical book.

Now before I get tons of email about how I have gone to "the dark side” reading eBooks, let me assure you that I also read a number of physical books, and I enjoyed them just as well. This was a nice choice. There was a moment when I finished the first book that I thought Let me just download another, and then I saw the bookshelf that I had stocked in the small office at the house and I abandoned that idea. I read on the Kindle app for iPad, and I confess that it made me insane that I never knew what page I was on and how much was left in a chapter. Instead, I was at 37% or 42% through the book. It’s quite odd to adopt a philosophy that I will read X percent more instead of X more pages before going to sleep. I read some samples on the iPad reader, and I liked that experience much better, but can see there will be a lot experimentation going on.

We’re curious as to how many members of your group are reading on eReaders these days. Weigh in and let us know by answering our poll here. Also, you can keep up with our blog here.

We’re starting 2011 with five great contests to win new books or advance reading copies of upcoming titles. Our first contest is for Kristin Hannah’s Winter Garden, which is out now in paperback. I’ve been reading Kristin for a long, long time, and Winter Garden is a very special book as she wrote a wonderful back story that took place in Leningrad during World War II. We have 50 paperbacks of Winter Garden to give away, so enter here by Wednesday, February 2nd at noon ET for your chance to win. Kristin’s writing gets stronger with each book, and I hope all of you will be on the lookout for her next book, Night Road, which will be out on March 22nd.

Erica Bauermeister’s The School of Essential Ingredients was a huge hit when it released two years ago, and she will be back this summer with Joy for Beginners, which is about a group of friends who vow to challenge themselves to do one thing they’ve always been afraid of. The book won’t be in stores until June 9th, but we 100 advance reading editions to give away to those who enter here by Wednesday, February 2nd at noon ET. Erica is also part of the Seattle7Writers project, a collection of Seattle-based authors who do some creative fundraising events to benefit literacy programs. Check out their The Novel: Live! project from the fall that featured more than 30 authors contributing a chapter to a group novel. Very cool!

Planting Dandelions: Field Notes from a Semi-Domesticated Life by Kyran Pittman is another book that won’t be in stores for a few months, but you can win one of our 100 advance copies. Enter here by Wednesday, February 2nd at noon ET. Planting Dandelions is an honest and hilarious account of the trials and tribulations of raising a family. Some of you may recognize Kyran’s name from Good Housekeeping magazine, where she’s a regular contributor. Planting Dandelions will be in stores April 28th.

Sean Manning’s tender The Things That Need Doing is another memoir we’re featuring this month. Here, Sean recounts the time spent at his ailing mother’s bedside, as well as his childhood in the Akron and Cleveland areas. The Things That Need Doing is in stores now, but we have 25 copies to give away to readers who enter here by Wednesday, February 2nd at noon ET.

We also have 25 copies of The Golden Prince by Rebecca Dean for readers to win. This historical novel follows a teenaged Prince Edward through his ascent to England’s thrones, and the superficial and hostile folks he encounters along the way. The one person he comes to trust, however, is a commoner, whose presence around the prince is strictly forbidden. Enter here by Wednesday, February 2nd at noon ET for your chance to win a copy.

We have a special opportunity for our registered groups this month. Ten groups will have the chance to chat with author James J. Kaufman about his novel, The Collectibles, a story about two very different men challenging each other to change for the better in the face of the country’s recent financial crisis. Don’t know if your group is registered yet? Then fill out the form here.

This month, readers who are subscribed to our newsletter can also win 20 copies of Helen Simonson’s excellent debut, Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand. The paperback version was just released, and we’ll be randomly selecting one lucky subscriber early next month. Please pass along our subscription link to anyone you think might be interested to help your chances of winning! Click here for more details.

There are also two contests of interest happening over on

We named Stieg Larsson’s The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest as our Book of the Year and his Millennium trilogy as our Series of the Decade. There was just no denying the worldwide impact these books had on popular culture, and will continue to have for years to come. To celebrate, we created this special Millennium website that we hope serves as a one-stop resource for all things Millennium-related, including reading guides, reviews, movie trailers and articles relating to the author. Three lucky winners will win the special Millennium boxed set that includes hardcover editions of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest, as well as On Stieg Larsson, a collection of essays and correspondence by and about the author. To be entered in the drawing, you must complete our Millennium survey and share your thoughts on the series.

One very lucky winner will win a complete collection of my Bets On picks from 2010 as our Grand Prize from our annual Holiday Cheer feature. There are 13 titles included, and the set is valued at over $300. These were my absolute favorite books from the past year, and I’m thrilled to be able to offer this opportunity. Although some of the books are available in paperback now, 11 of the 13 titles are in hardcover. Enter here by Tuesday, January 18th at noon ET for your chance to win. In the meantime, clear some shelf space! You’re going to need it!

I’m also returning with my first Bets On pick for 2011, Lisa Genova's Left Neglected. Lisa proves lightning can strike twice as her debut, Still Alice, was one of my very first Bets On picks. I loved Jacquelyn Mitchard's quote about Left Neglected, where she calls Genova "the Michael Crichton of brain science" after reading both of her books. In Left Neglected, Sarah Nickerson, a young mother with small children, is in a horrible car accident that leaves her without feeling on the left side of her body. From here, she has to learn to live her life again and at the same time looks at many things in her life that have been left neglected all these years as she worked long hours and lost her focus. You can read more of my thoughts on Left Neglected below and here. Reviewer Carole Turner says, “It is hard to put down and practically begs to be read in one sitting, as it lingers with the reader long after the last page is turned.”

This afternoon I will be at a tea where two authors will be presenting: Paula McLain, author of The Paris Wife, which I am wild about and is coming in February; and Luanne Rice, author of The Silver Boat, which is coming in April. It should be a lovely afternoon, which I will report on in an upcoming newsletter.

Here’s to a great month of reading and discussing books!

In these 18 linked, chronological essays, Pittman covers the first 12 years of becoming a family, writing candidly and hilariously about things like learning to maintain a marriage over time; dealing with the challenges of sex after childbirth; saying goodbye to her younger self and embracing the still attractive, 40-year-old version; and trying to “recession-proof” her family.
