  1. You had a great reading week! :)
    I love Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe! Even I didn't like Possession by A. S. Byatt, like others seem to.

  4. Whew- that's what I say going through your list. :-) Lots of varied reading. I'm watching for your review of Withers. I have been reading some dystopia lately so that interests me.
    Have a great week.

Comments make me feel all squishy happy inside, so drop a line if you see or read something interesting! PLEASE don't leave links to your blog or page unless the post you're replying to specifically asks you to leave a link!
Sorry that I had to re-enable word verification, but without it, there was far too much spam coming in - the only other option would have been to require only registered (Google, OpenID, etc.) comments, which might require you, the commenter, to go through even MORE steps just to comment!
