As you already know from my post last week (where you’ll find the concept and the topics), I invented a new meme to celebrate the Jewish holiday of Hanukkah with all of my book blogging friends, of all races, creeds, religions, genders, and whatever. I’m calling it…
The Chocolate Lady’s
Eight Candle Book Tag Link Party!
This post is being published just as Jews in Israel light the first candle for the first day of Hanukkah. I have chosen one book for each night on bookish topics (the topics and rules can be found on this post, here). Also, you will find my Link Party at the bottom of each of these posts so anyone who wants to can join in the fun.
Remember, you don’t have to be Jewish to participate!
Here is my choice for:
A book you love, but one that no one else seems to know anything about.
I’m going to promote a book written by friends of mine, because not only was it the first email-epistolary novel, but it was based on the real-life relationship between the co-authors, who are happily married today! That book is “Letters from the Fire” by Alma Hromic and R.A. Deckart. The bulk of this novel is comprised of the online correspondence between an American man and a Serbian woman living in Kosovo when NATO forces attacked that city in 1999. The two “meet” on an online forum, fighting about the war, and then continue their contact via personal emails.
