thanks for all your book suggestions, my summer reading cup overfloweth! all the book love reminded me of other favorites on my top ten list. which made me think: "i should post that" and also: "will you post yours?" i'll go first:
Cold Sassy Tree, by Olive Ann Burns
To Kill a Mocking Bird, by harper lee
Dark Angel, by Robert Kirby
The Book Thief, by Marcus Zusack
The Power of One, by Bryce Courtney
A long way from chicago/a year down yonder, by Richard Peck
Peace Like a River, By Leif Enger
Out of the Dust, by Karen Hesse
tie (cause i can't decide) Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith/A River Runs Through It, by Norman McClean
Tie(because, again, i can't decide): The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie society, byMary Ann Shaffer/and The Ladies of Missalonghi, by Colleen McCollough
so i cheated a bit. but i allow cheating here.
And the most important news of all:
