Checking My Links . . .

I took some time to doublecheck my links on my sidebar. I found out lots of info to share:
Did you know that there is going to be a celebration in Washington, D.C. this year so the National Gallery of Art is the next stop for Venice: Canaletto and His Rivals? The Washington celebration is technically called La Dolce DC that coincides with the opening of this awesome exhibition that was just in London. ITALY @ 150 celebrates the 150th anniversary of the unification of the Italian states.

I was very excited to learn that John Burnham Schwartz is working on a sequel to Reservation Road, the book I previously got confused with Revolutionary Road. This sequel is called Northwest Corner and will be on sale in July 2011. Read more HERE.
Some other books I am looking forward to soon being published:
