message 8: by Sandra (new)

Sandra (sanlema) | 9300 comments Many good books, Peggy. I have read some, and have plenty in my TBR.
You still have The Glass Castle there, but you already read it. ;)


message 9: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14870 comments Oh thanks Sandra! That's what you get with two lists to keep track off..


message 10: by Sandra (new)

Sandra (sanlema) | 9300 comments You can now replace it with another great book. :)


message 11: by Ariane (new)

Ariane | 697 comments Memoirs of a Geisha is one of my favourite books, I hope you enjoy it :)


message 12: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14870 comments I've been wanting to read it for a long time Ariane, but somehow it just gets pushed back and back. I will make time for it this year though!


message 13: by Tasha (new)

Tasha I liked it as well.


message 14: by Sarah, Moderator (new)

Sarah | 18170 comments Like you Peggy, I kept putting off Memoirs... but it was chosen for me to read for a challenge last year and I was impressed. it ended up being a 5 star book which made it on to my favourites shelf.


message 15: by Peggy, Moderator (new)

Peggy (pebbles84) | 14870 comments I didn't read as many books as I thought I would in January, but at least the ones I read were good! Hopefully February will be just as great (or even greater, I would love a 5-star book!).


message 16: by [deleted user] (last edited Feb 23, 2016 02:39PM) (new)

Good luck with all your challenges, Peggy. :) You own some really good ebooks. I read Rooftops of Tehran years ago and enjoyed the story.
