A Bookreader's Blog - cjs - 04-14-2011

My school friend, author Marilee (Putnam) Brothers has started a blog for any of us who love to read!! And, she is starting out with a contest, so you might want to check it out.

I think this will be interesting!!! sign up now.

Is she really related to the in the publishing company?

I've got to figure out how'll have to be Saturday. (I hate to start another Yahoo account, when I think I already have one, I think.)

Re: A Bookreader's Blog - cjs - 04-14-2011

Have no idea about the Putnams, she grew up with me in Yakima, WA. probably not.

Re: A Bookreader's Blog - Gourmet_Mom - 04-14-2011

They must be her publisher? See your original post. My confusion will then make sense.

I submitted my answer Fun site and I love the fact that it gives me ideas of what to read.

Re: A Bookreader's Blog - cjs - 04-15-2011

Putnam was her maiden name, Daphne. Now, I'm confused.

Re: A Bookreader's Blog - Gourmet_Mom - 04-15-2011

I didn't know if she was part of the family...Putnam Publishing.

I just finished reading what she calls her favorite book, The Rock & Roll Queen of Bedlam - she is now working on a series of books for young adults, but she said she'd love to continue with the characters in this book. I was pleasantly surprised at how much I like(d) her book, characters and plot. She threw in some twists that I would never have thought of and definitely does not write a 'formula' book.

The third old friend from school is Durella, who is the mgr. of the wine dept. of Yakima's Costco. We laugh that Marilee writes, Jean cooks and Durella drinks.

I'm rambling, but I'm so proud of Marilee - I had put off reading the book, 'cause I so did not want to not like it and then what would I say!!

This is great, Jean. Thanks for posting.

Just wanted to let everyone know - if anyone is interested.... Marilee's "Book Blather" blog has a new address. Evidently the old one was confusing.
