A Flattering Nod

I got an email from a guy named Vladimir the other day who had read my review of The Time Traveler's Wife on Amazon.com. He was emailing me to ask my permission to publish my review on a website he is putting together called BooksAlley.com. Of course, I gave him my permission as he was a very nice guy and any publicity is good publicity in my eyes. His website is pretty cool and is just getting started. It looks like the finished product will be a website that reviews and offers audio books and audio book related products. Some really good content!

Well I head over to his site today and in the upper right-hand corner, I see that "This Week's Editorial Choice" is none other than myself! So, a big thank you to Vladimir! And if you have a second, go check out his site...like he said, it's in the works right now, but in the future he hopes to have the full site running. He was worried about his English too, as it's a second language, but I say he does a fine job!

He's also looking for content, and there's a link you can click on to submit any articles you have on audio books.

Congrats to you, that is great! I popped over there and it looks like he has done alot of work on the site, very involved. While there I noticed the ad for the unabriged audio of A Time Traveler's Wife...that is something I have to add to my wishlist as I would love to have it.

So totally terrific! And to think I get comments from a famous person - YOU! I'm bookmarking that site because I love audio books while driving. I'm glad you became famous so we would know about this blog.

Chris said...

Carl, I noticed that too..I'd love to get a copy of that. I listened to the audio that he posted, but it's not much...you only get about 20 seconds of the actual book.

Booklogged, :p I'm just starting to get into audio books. I was never that big of a fan until recently and I'm just starting to appreciate them.

Andi said...

Thanks for the link! It's always good to have another bookish site to peruse. :)

Chris said...

deslily, lol...I got bored, so I changed it up. It's a New Orleans manhole cover in the shape of a peace sign with fleur de lis' (the big "new orleans symbol). I'm sure I'll be sick of that one again in a week and change it once again!

No prob Andi! I'm always looking for bookish sites too :)
