The Cephalopod Coffeehouse: June Blog List

Greetings to all!  I hope you'll join us for the next installment of the Cephalopod Coffeehouse, an online gathering of bloggers who love books.  The next meeting is set for Friday, June 28th.  If you're interested, please sign on to the link list at the end of this post.

The idea is simple: on the last Friday of each month, post about the best book you've finished over the past month while visiting other bloggers doing the same.  In this way, we'll all have the opportunity to share our thoughts with other enthusiastic readers.  Please join us:

    1. There was a memo?

      Hardly a big deal. I'm just so glad you're joining in the fun, sir!

  3. I'm traveling during that week so don't know how soon I'd be able to visit the posts of others. Eep. Should I sign up anyway? Writing a post in advance is no biggie but that's only half the fun ...

    1. Well yes, of course you should! You can catch up when you get back - extending the fun just a little bit longer.

    2. Bueno. I will. I'm reading a book right now that I am *loving* so I may do a write up on that and have it ready to go. Consistent with a younger iteration of Suze. When I got the syllabuses (syllabi?) in college for my composition classes, I wrote the papers two weeks in advance and filed them away in a drawer to be pulled out on their due dates.

      Yeah, I know.

    3. Also, I just tried to click the link for Jenny's blog -- I think that's hers, 'My Creatively Random Life?' And it doesn't work. I believe there's a comma where there should be a period. Maybe that's something you can change, Coffeehouse Maestro.

    4. Nice catch - and now fixed.

      I'm glad you'll be joining us again. Somehow, I'm not the least bit surprised by your two weeks in advance thing. Not me. I lived on last-minute all-nighters.

  4. Still thinkin' about it... I may join up in a week or so if I settle on something. :-)

    1. Wouldn't be the same without you, Cyg. I hope you will join us.

    2. I call the question. All in favor?

  5. Do we need to sign up all over again each month? If that's the case, I will post my review link when I do it. I expect to have a couple of reviews up this month.

    1. I think that's the best way - every month a fresh start. Your plan sounds excellent.

  6. Sounds like a good idea Squid. I'll add it to my calendar!

  7. Question: what 'link' would I have to put in the sign up section?
    Maybe obvious to some, but seeing as this would be my very first time I'm a tad clueless?

    1. For me, it's just the title and URL for my blog. Some prefer to use a link directly to the particular post.

      I hope you'll join us, Mark!

  8. Heya! I'm sorry it's taken me sooo long to reply to your invitation, I've been busy with a lot of things, and then away for a week.

    I'd love to join, however I seldom get to finish a whole book in a month's time. :( (very slow reader!)

    1. Fair enough. I hope you'll consider it if you do finish one.

      Hey, you're a beer man so you'll appreciate this. We just got back from vacation in Michigan with two cases of Bell's Brewery beer: Two Hearted Ale and Oberon.
