But imagine the joy when you go home and find it waiting, all lonely and pining to be read.

I can't believe I missed him at BEA! Now must hope he comes to local bookstore.

karen i ruin dreams - wahhhhh

i could maybe finish a graphic novel... but i will probably just re-read parts of Mortal Leap because it is really good.

Janet another book my library doesn't carry. will you never stop broadening my literary horizons?


message 9: by karen (new)

karen this one i had to have sent to me, and it is then going on its merry way... perhaps you could get on its train? i don't know how long the list is...
