Clearly i've arrived a bit late to the nominations threads this month, as I have nothing to add to this one either. Several choices in there I would gladly go with.


message 18: by Patricia (new)

Patricia | 199 comments This is going to be a difficult choice! I've read most and those I haven't read are on my list to read! So maybe that makes it an easy choice?
