Ross | 21 comments Hello Marina
Merry Christmas. On my first roll of this game I landed on your property. Would you be willing to pick three books for me from my list?

Or you could also include a completely different book from your list, I'm trying to broaden my reading.

Thanks for the picks, Marina.

Since And the Mountains Echoed was my pick for my last roll (haven't started it yet), I will go with Cat's Eye, which I own. It is about time I get around to reading it as it has been on my TBR since 2011. It is also scheduled for two other challenges (Reading with Style and PAS Moving Mountains).
