Isn’t that what Saturdays are for, after all?

Speaking of fun places to hang out . . .

. . . on Facebook, as I did in my last post, here are two more groups you may want to check out — and join. First, there’s the recently formed Avon Contemporary Romance Readers group. Very lively and fun!

Second, there’s the brand-new League of Extraordinary Historical Romance Authors, featuring a powerhouse crew including Lenora Bell, Kelly Bowen, Kerrigan Byrne, Valerie Bowman, KJ Charles, Piper Huguley, Sophie Jordan, Sarah MacLean, Vanessa Riley, Maya Rodale, Cat Sebastian, Joanna Shupe, and Sherry Thomas. It’s launching this Friday at 3 pm EST with a party hosted by Lenora Bell, with book chats, giveaways, and more. Sounds like a blast!

What are your favorite places to hang out on Facebook?

Have you heard . . . ?

. . . about this nifty Facebook group for book lovers like me — and you, too, perhaps?

Last year I was lucky enough to participate in the annual Read a Romance Month event hosted by journalist, book devotee, and romance advocate Bobbi Dumas, and I’ve recently learned that Bobbi also cohosts the very fun Romance of Reading group on Facebook where you can hang out with fellow readers, talk about great books, and enter to win book giveaways, too.

Which Jane Austen characters . . .

. . . would I invite to a holiday party? All of them, of course. It would certainly be — as Austen herself might say — vastly amusing!

Speaking of Austen — one of my favorite all-time authors — I recently wrote a fun little post for Bookish called “How Jane Austen Continues to Inspire Romance Authors.” Click here to check it out.
