    So many books, so little time!
    Reading is a gift.

    Thanks for the recommendations, Mary. At the moment I'm reading Christie Craig's Divorced, Desperate, and Deceived. It's a ton of fun. All her books are lively, entertaining reads!

    I love Kasey's books. I haven't read this one yet though. Thanks for the suggestions as one of my goals this year is to read 10 books outside of my normal genres.

    Loved that book, Barbara! That one kept me laughing.

  5. Scarlet Pumpernickel // January 16, 2010 at 10:44 PM  

    That's for the reviews it gives me more to add to my TBR pile!

    Autumn, I love romances and women's fiction books. I enjoy comedies, suspenseful books, and paranormal books. I just love to read! I read YA books, too.

  7. Mary Marvella // January 16, 2010 at 10:46 PM  

    Yes, Mary R, a gift, but for me reading recharges my batteries and is food for my soul. I have stacks of books waiting for me! Gotta love it.

  8. Mary Marvella // January 16, 2010 at 10:47 PM  

    Scarlet, you might have some of these hidden in your stacks. They are not all new releases.

  9. Mary Marvella // January 16, 2010 at 10:48 PM  

    FYI, I saw Barbara, Pam, and Scarlet today! Too cool.

    Thanks, Mary, for your suggestions. Reading is such a joy for me, even when I look at the stack of books TBR and wonder how I'll ever find the time to read them all.

  12. Scarlet Pumpernickel // January 17, 2010 at 5:31 PM  

    You know my stacks are scattered all over the house! If we do build a house it will take one truck load just to move my books! LOL, no kidding, my to be read pile is that big!

    And yes it was great to see everyone at the meeting yesterday! MM and I worked after the meeting on the Space Opera we began right here on the pink fuzzies! It's coming along and we're hoping to submit it to TWRP soon!

    Thanks for the suggestions, Mary. I'm going to check out the Geometry of Sisters.

    Super, Mary, but you need to add Eeyore's Gloomy Little Instruction Book. :)
