Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. A very interesting collection of books here.

  2. I LOVE Chris Bohjalian as an author, and have read all of his books. Double Bind was one of my favorites...enjoy Michelle.

  3. You got some good stuff at the library sale! Thanks for reminding me about The Book Thief!

  4. I read The Line and enjoyed it..I hope you do too! And I have The Forest of Hands and Teeth in my TBR pile!

    Here is my Mailbox

  5. i have to start my copy of game of thrones! i watched a teaser episode and immediately got hooked ;-D

  6. That is a great selection of books, some I've read and some I really, really, really want to read! BEFORE VERSAILLES looks so interesting. I can't wait to see what you think of it!

  7. I have yet to read a Daphne Du Maurier book though I'm so desperately wanting to do so.

    I just read The Hypnotist, the thrid book in the MJ Rose series. I'm thinking I should have read the first two first.

    Hope you are having a great week!
