  1. I received The Grief of Others this week...looking forward to it.

    I've also been wanting to read The Silver Boat...and Left Neglected is on my Kindle.

    Enjoy your week!


  2. I see a lot of people reading The Grief Of Others... is it good? The title frightens me a bit... :)

  3. That's quite a list of books you need to review! I really enjoyed TC Boyle's When the Killing's Done. I haven't read most of the others, but enjoy almost anything by Dickens. Bleak House is next on my Dickens' TBR list.

  4. Read much? Write less? Ah, well. Reading is the joy and bane of our existence. Great selection this week! Check out mine!

  5. That is quite the list of unreviewed books! Good luck tackling that!

I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
