The covers of all of those look like they're good and juicy with great characters. So sad to say I haven't read a one. I guess i better go pay that old "liberry" fine and start checking out again. :)

Everyone who follows your blog should get to add one choice. So I'll start: Finding Beauty in a Broken World by Terry Tempest Williams.

There's never time for all the good books in the world, the stack my bed is huge. :)

And I'll just put in another plug for The Wholeness of a Broken Heart. Loved that, need to read it again now.

Did you read Bel Canto by Ann Patchett? I'm halfway through it. Good stuff.
