Read Winnie-the-Pooh in January and am currently reading La Prisonniere (in Danish though... I don't speak French).

Finished Stolen Lives (La Prisonniere's English title) last night. It's absolutely amazing!

Hi kLorene. I finished "The Red Tent" last night and was unfortunately a bit disappointed in it, as I felt it strayed too far from the original Biblical story (not so much of Dinah, I liked what they did there, but felt Jacob and Joseph were very misrepresented). As a book in its own right, I enjoyed it and found it well-written, but I'd have liked it better if it hadn't tried to claim to be Biblical.

"Wild Swans" was amazing! I highly recommend it.

Only 5 more to go - I'm rushing ahead of schedule ;)

Aaaand now I'm behind schedule. I've only read one since May! That doesn't mean I haven't read any owned-unread books though... just different ones ;)

I finished "Dragonflight" yesterday and really enjoyed it. "Dragonsong" and "Dragonsinger" (of the Harper's Hall trilogy) are both better though.
