  1. Wow, you have lots of reading to do – how wonderful :). Looks like a great variety!

  2. Sherri says:

    You will be very busy! Some great stories here, looking forward to the reviews. Also, I have been in touch with Christine who has given me great encouragement for my memoir (which I’m writing, honestly!) so many thanks TB for sending me her way, I really appreciate your help.

    • TBM says:

      That’s great news on all fronts. Christine is wonderful and I think you are neat, so I’m you two are friends now. And so happy to hear that you are writing. I can’t wait to review your memoir!

  3. So much subterfuge, mystery and intrigue on your reading list. Plus vampires. Where would the modern world be without those pop culture time-fillers on the page, tube, screen and in the cash register? As a semi-illiterate, I limit my reading to grocery lists, sub-titles and The New Yorker, but free is my second favorite four letter f-word. I’m a New Yorker. Shirley, you know what’s my first favorite.

    • TBM says:

      I have a pretty good idea. I think it would help if I made grocery lists. it would save me time wandering up and down each aisle coming up with “dinner” ideas.

  4. Lots of good books coming up for your review… can’t wait to find out what you thought of them.
