Kate (kathrynlouwca) | 707 comments Welcome Melissa! I've never actually read Nora Roberts. I might have to give her a try sometime.


Robin (Saturndoo) (robinsaturndoo) Hi Melissa!!!

I like your selection. Nora Roberts is one of my favorites, although I am not such a big fan of her writing as J.D. Robb lol

In the Garden is one of my favorite series :)

Enjoy!!!

I know a lot of readers who like NR but not JD Robb OR like JD Robb but not Nora Roberts' writing. I enjoy the ...In Death books, but if she decides to wrap it up after 40+ books, I would be so okay with that.

I'm hoping to read about an hour to my 3 little ones as well - it's such a special time together. :)

Amy | 181 comments Love that you're including your kids! My 14yo is a voracious reader but doesn't count her pages or do the social media thing much. However, my 11yo loves to put together a pile, take pictures, keep track, etc.

Kate (kathrynlouwca) | 707 comments I love it when people include their children. Someone on Facebook has created a reward system for her children and reading. Complete with prizes. I think that is really awesome.
