Some good looking books there. I have the Kate Milford book on my list.

Thanks. The Kate Milford book will probably take me a while. Her books always require a lot of thought and careful reading.

Wonderful assortment of books. I enjoy Jim Butcher's writing which reminds me that I have an unread one on my Kindle. Come see my week here. Happy New Year and happy reading!

Happy New Year! I've had guests for the last three days, so I haven't had much time to read.
