top ten books...sort of a rehash. forgive me. and the reason i'm giddy today.

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:


top ten:
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:




this is were mike has been living the past 6 months. he's not there anymore. he is on his way HOME! and i can't wait, and the suspense is killing me. Hooray!

Oh, happy day! Man, that's going to be so great to have him home. Congratulations on making it up there in Alaska without him. I guess Uncle Gunther was there to help. ;) You're a brave woman though, I would have been at my mom's in a week.
