  1. I’ve read eght on this list. I have Sula on the top of my TBR pile, Suite Française and Atlas Shrugged are also in that plie. I loved Cold Comfort Farm and Angela’s Ashes.


  2. Secret Garden is wonderful. I’ve also read all the Harry Potter books.


  3. Sigh. I have read only one on this list (Secret Garden). On a positive note, I finished reading Persuasion and Far From the Madding Crowd. Perhaps I should look for Cold Comfort Farm next!


I look forward to reading your greatly appreciated comments. Thanks for making my day! :)
