I just had to say I'm very impressed with your library. I've got many "I wants" from your list.

I also love your profile picture. You should take similar pics from all the momentous occasions in your life.

All the best...Elizabeth
I see you have Kept in the Dark by Penny Hancock. I really want to read it. Are you going to put it up for Members giveaway....? I tried on ebay, but no luck...Help!! Kat
Best. Profile pic. Ever. "Honey, I know! Just let me finish this paragraph!" :D

Jen,

I'm on Part Five of "Gone with the Wind" and savoring it. I don't want it to end and can't think why it took so long to read it. Perhaps because the movie is so good, I fooled myself into thinking I actually had read it.

Your profile photo is priceless. Hopefully your groom shares or at least understands your addiction.

Anne
Another comment just to express how fantastic your profile photo is...
I will look forward to reading "Faith" by Jennifer Haigh! Thanks for sharing your rating.
I love your profile photo!
2011's Books for THE HIGHLY RATED BOOK GROUP:

1st Quarter): January 1st, (long gone), -- March 31st.
The Outlander by Diana Gabaldon with an L.T. rating of 4.39.

2nd Quarter): April 1st -- June 30th.
Bleak House by Charles Dickens with an L.T. rating of 4.27.

3rd Quarter): July 1st -- September 30.
The Tea Rose by Jennifer Donnelly with an L.T. rating of 4.05.

And for the 4th and final Quarter of 2011): October 1st -- December 31st.
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton also with an L.T. rating of 4.05.

And perhaps, if cyderry would be so kind to get together another list of L.T. 'highly rated' books come near the end of 2011, we will be able to smoothly segue into 2012. That would be such a treat.
DoB:

Yep. I do work at PPLD. Stop at the reference desk and say 'Hi'.
