One of the perks of my job is reading book blogs. I get to scan the internet to find reviews of our books. That being said, I thought that it would be a good idea to look back at Peachtree in the blog-o-sphere for the month of January. Did you blog about one of our books this month? Did I miss it? Let me know and I will add you to the list! Also, check back Friday for a post on the upcoming BEA as part of the BEA Blog Tour, which started today at Beth Fish Reads.
