Hi Louise

Thanks for choosing my challenge, The Historian, I'm looking forward to reading this.

I've chosen for you, My Dirty Little Book Of Stolen Time by Liz Jensen. I love the title and it instantly grabbed my attention. I thought it would have been a chick lit/ yummy mummy book so I was surprised when I read the blurb. I hope you enjoy it

Hi Louise,

For once I'm being organised! For the 2011 challenge I've picked Lennox by Craig Russell for you to read. I have it on my tbr as well, so am also going to try and read it.

Oh, and my challenge to you is for your to read In Custody by Anita Desai. It looks quite interesting, although I haven't read it, the blurb on it sounds interesting. Is that okay?

Hi Louis,

Thankyou for your challenge. I bought quite a few Agatha Raisin books from my local charity shop and have as yet have not got round to reading any, this is going to get me started on the series as they look like lovely reads. For your 2010 challenge I would like you to read 'The Descendants' by Kaui Hart Hemmings. I've been meaning to read this one myself so will probably join you, I know Sam wasn't all that impressed by it. Hope that's ok.

HiLouise. Thanks for your challenge of A Prayer for Owen Meany. I think you challenged me this last year as well so hopefully I will get around to reading it iun 2010. I'd like to challenge you to The Observations by Jane Harris. I've also got this book and would like to read it as well. Val x
Hi Louise,

Love, Helen.
