  1. Wow! You finished a lot last week. I'm looking forward to reading what you thought of "Cost." I really enjoyed it.

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. The fact that everyone can SEE how many books I have is bad enough, I don't want them to know how many I haven't read yet - I'm still adding to the list ;-)

    I have Benny & Shrimp on my tbr list but it was sent as a review book so there shouldn't be too much complaint.

    I like how you label the still reading books.

  3. A great reading week for you - hope the coming week is just as productive..

    Cool blog..


  4. You finished a ton of books this week, that's AWESOME!! I can't wait to read your review of Benny & Shrimp (it's currently on my nightstand pile.)

  5. I keep seeing "Benny and Shrimp" everywhere...must be a good one!

  6. I have a book by Stegner on my TBR shelf that I really should read. Maybe in the winter.

  7. I just started reading The Time Traveler's Wife. I'm also reading Burnt Shadows. Burnt Shadows is a bit heavy, so TTTW is my treat to myself when I finish x number of pages for Burnt Shadows. :)

    btw, I sent you an email. Hopefully it doesn't go to spam!

  8. Holy cow, what an awesome week you had. I have East of the Mountains on my bookshelf to read so looking forward to your review on this one & Benny & Shrimp and also That Summer. Happy reading :-)

  9. Could you have seen Heck on my blog? I reviewed it in early July. My kids liked it, but felt a bit cheated that it's so clearly set up to be dependent on a sequel.


I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
