Hello and Merry Christmas!!! Just a quick note to say thank you for the wonderful books you choose. Its great because I have not read any of them. Thank you for getting the books on my wish list and also giving me fun new books to read. I am going to start with seraphina. It seems lile a good book to read with a good cup of hot chocolate. Thanks and I hope you have a WONDERFUL day today and may the New Year brings lots of good things :)

Good Morning,

I read your review on "The Yellow Birds" and I appreciated its heartfelt struggle. I think what makes a good review is the translation of the feelings that the book gave you into the review itself. So what if it isn't a structurally correct review that would get an "A" from an instructor or professor. It told me just what I needed to know about the book. Thank you for that. I will be looking at your other reviews and your blog. I hope to start a blog soon, myself. I had one up but began having issues with my computers and had to let it go by the wayside. My new one will be about reading, books, my writing (NANOWRIMO begins Nov 1), and my dogs, who fill my days with love and wonder. Have a wonderful day, Mary Beth
Hi, I just finished reading John Saturnall's Feast today and read your review with interest. You mention Lucretia's rape in your review; personally, I find there is no evidence that the rape actually took place. Certainly, she was in grave danger from Ephraim Clough and he had the utmost intention of raping her, yet John managed to intervene in time as he was hovering outside the chapel and so managed to overhear Lucretia's distress. Before this incident, all Clough did in the chapel was observe Lucretia in prayer, first dressed, then stripped down to her shift. Is this the passage you had in mind when you thought of rape?
I love everything this author writes, but this one is his best. I'm in such awe that I will have to wait to write a review that will capture my thoughts and feelings. I find that the books I like the best are those for which I struggle to write comments.

I'm a member of the 75 book challenge group. We are a wonderful bunch of readers who are kind, sensitive and supportive. If you have time, you might want to stop over. It would be great to have you with us.
Hello. Tonight I finished Gary Schmidt's book Okay For Now. I love your review! I agree with you. This book should get the highest honors possible! I've read 100 books this year and this one is the best!
