  1. Thanks for the good ideas. I needed it last night though when we came up with our list for the next year!

    Some of those sound like great reads, even without my reading the summaries.

  3. I've read a few of those, and many of them are on my "to read" list. There are also some that haven't popped up on my radar before. Thanks for the suggestions!

  4. I really like the Guernsey book. Very charming. And The Hunger Games of course....

  5. How come no one invites me to this? Is it private or am I too wierd? Wait, don't answer that.

  6. I know I am far away but I think I am going to read along too!! :)

  7. I just re-read these comments and I couldn't figure out why my bro and SIL commented on your blog! Ha ha! It was me! I was in Blanding on their computer when I commented. Funny! SO, Andy&ALicia is really me...Kerry.
