  1. I'm reading The Witch of Belladona Bay right now!

    Linda in VA

  2. I have a book recommendation question. My brother & his partner are planning a trip to India. They'd go for 3-6 weeks and wander about. They did this in Australia a few years ago, spending a lot of time in hostels and keeping the budget reasonable.

    They are a bit worried about getting too far out of their comfort zone with India though, and Kevin wants some reading to do to boost his confidence. Ideal would be travelogues that were positive (i.e. not "and then we got dysentery and almost died") but fiction slice of life stories giving a sense of what things are like.

    I claimed I had a friend who read a lot (you) and one of your special genres was Indian books, so now he's expecting the best. Apparently when you read a book a week and then announce you know someone who reads a lot people have high expectations.

  3. I heard a lot of good buzz about Burial Rites. I hope you love it!


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.
