TBR: In Extremis

Marie Colvin (January 12, 1956 – February 22, 2012)

Finally, a book on Marie Colvin, although not by Marie Colvin. This is what the world needs, a biography of a fearless journalist, a written legacy to remind us that we need journalists like Marie Colvin, and of course, Lindsey Hilsum, the author herself.

I bought Sandstorm (Lindsey Hilsum’s first book) but I haven’t gotten to it yet, and now this! Sometimes it’s hard to get my priorities right. Should I blog about books, read my books, take a break from my books, be a parent, do some chores, make some money? The answer will always be – do it all at once!

p.s. For those of you whom might be interested, there’s a tribute book on Marie Colvin, titled On The Front Line: The Collected Journalism of Marie Colvin. As I write this, it is currently priced at $0.99 on Kindle, though not for long. If you’re in my vicinity and would like to check it out, I have it in paperback as well, just drop me a line.
