Its been far too long since Ive seen this ode to books blog of yours. I miss it. I need a good new book to read and I knew right where to find one. HERE :)

Trish said...

Thanks for the links, you guys!

*Jeane - This hasn't been the process until a few weeks ago when Mr. Linky decided to go kaput. This is easier for me than trying to get a new Mr. Linky up and running.

*Nadia - Just finished Boy's Life by Robert McCammon and loved it--maybe try that one?
