I love many of those books as well. Do you do goodreads? We have got to connect on there. The only one I did not like was the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency. Maybe I should give them another try. It was fun seeing you last night. You always make my day brighter!

Ah, books. I see many I enjoy on your list, too. I love finding a copy of a favorite for practically nothing! Happy, happy, happy.
