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. You've got some greats one on there and ones I've been wanting to get to too one day. I started Emma this weekend and it's been great to get back to it. I've got a few I want to get to one after another so I probably won't participate in the spin for a bit but I love seeing what others have. There are so many classics and authors that I have never heard of! Good luck!

    1. I have Emma on another classics challenge so kind of hoping that one is picked for the spin. We shall see. Thanks!

  2. I was just thinking this morning that I missed reading writing books during my morning routine. I might have to crib a potentials from your list!

  3. I read Writing Down The Bones years ago and remember loving it! Of course, Austen is always a treasure and The Hunchback of Notre Dame would be interesting as well. I hope you have a great spin, Michelle!!

    1. Thanks for stopping by, Cleo. Hope I get something good.

  4. We have some commonalities between our lists, both books and authors. Fingers crossed the spin gives both of us books we love.

    1. Cool! Headed over to take a look at your list now. =^..^=

    2. Some nice choices. I thought Brideshead Revisted was an interesting read. Enjoy whatever you get!

  5. Wow, there's a lot of great picks here. The Hunchback of Norte Dame and Emma are some of my favorites. And The Collector... woo boy, is that one haunting.
    Good luck on your spin!!
