  5. I really liked Stardust (I liked the movie even more).

    I want to read Major Pettigrew's Last Stand and the Mercy Thompson series. I also plan to try Adriana Trigiani's books sometime too.

    I hope you have a great week!

  7. I think it's time for a reread of The Color Purple...and I see a Big Stone Gap book there, (I think!).

    At any rate, Big Cherry Holler looks tempting!

  8. I have the Big Cherry Holler with me, but because I have not read the 1st in the series and have not got that book, I have to wait!

    I really want to read The Color Purple!

  9. Major Pettigrew has been on my wishlist for a while.

    Do hope you manage that trip and if so, (and you are not here next Monday), Happy Birthday for next Monday!
