Amy Einhorn Perpetual Challenge



If there is one publisher who has her finger on the pulse of what is hot, it is Amy Einhorn of Amy Einhorn Books imprint from Putnam. One of her first books was Kathryn Stockett'sThe Help , which I read on my Kindle last winter on vacation in the Bahamas. I got a sunburn reading the book on beach because I couldn't put it down!

THE HELP is a legitimate phenomenon, and ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY reported that Steven Spielberg has optioned the book for a feature film. Diana Joseph's I'm Sorry You Feel That Way: The Astonishing True Story of a Daughter, Sister, Slut, Wife, Mother and Friend to Man and Dog was funny and moving. My review here:

This year's sensation is Sarah Blake's The Postmistress, another home run now on the best seller lists, and a book that bloggers are all talking about. I'm halfway through and it is leaving me breathless.

Beth Fish Reads is sponsoring the Amy Einhorn Perpetual Challenge. Readers and bloggers will read through all the Amy Einhorn titles (there are fifteen so far), and comment on them.

I got to meet Amy Einhorn and Sarah Blake at a book reading last night at Barnes & Noble 86th St. in NYC, and I felt like I was going backstage at a Springsteen concert; they are rock stars of the literary world. They are lovely, smart and talented ladies.

This is a fabulous challenge and if you would like to join, click on the link here:

Look for more of my reviews of Amy Einhorn titles in the weeks and months ahead. Happy reading!
