The Doll Blogs: When Dolls Speak I Listen

On December 6, 2010, Google launched a new service that allows you to purchase and read books online:  Google ebookstore.  My third publication about dolls, The Doll Blogs:  When Dolls Speak, I Listen, is a Google ebookstore title as is my second black-doll reference book, Black Dolls:  A Comprehensive Guide to Celebrating, Collecting, and Experiencing the Passion. 

About The Doll Blogs: To serve the doll-collecting community, particularly avid Black-doll enthusiasts, Ms. Garrett continues to write about the dolls she loves. In this, her third doll publication, dolls, both old and new, blog their experiences over a two-year period as chosen dolls in Garrett's extensive and quite eclectic Black-doll collection. Dolls by various artists and manufacturers, from vintage to modern, play dolls to one-of-a-kind dolls are included in this 297-page electronic book. If you love dolls, possess a vivid imagination, and enjoy combining the two, you will derive great pleasure reading The Doll Blogs, another first for Debbie Behan Garrett.

Garrett takes the reader on an imaginative voyage in doll-collecting world where she meets and greets new dolls, reacquaints herself with old ones, and continues the passion for all as a doll whisperer, allowing the dolls to speak through her. This first book devoted to dolls that speak in blog form is masterfully engaging, a sure delight.

Reader Review:

I have read the preview of The Doll Blogs and really enjoyed it. Debbie Garrett is near genius to come up with such an idea to impart information about dolls from what appears to be the dolls themselves. I have to admit it was totally different than what I expected and a lot more entertaining than just reading mere facts about each doll.

You, too, can enjoy reading The Doll Blogs and viewing its well-over 400+ illustrations in full color using a variety of Google eBook-compatible devices —everything from personal computers, laptops, and netbooks to tablets, smartphones, and e-readers (it is not on the Kindle, just yet, and unfortunately is only available to domestic customers.)

If you live in the US, you may sample and/or purchase The Doll Blogs now from the Google eBookstore with a major credit card, but you must first be a registered user (which is free).

Thank you in advance for your support, for your reviews after you have purchased and read either title, and for forwarding the link to this blog to others who may be interested!
