  1. I admire how you can plug through a series. I tend to read the first, but no matter how much I enjoy it, never seem to return to the 2nd book.

    1. Thanks for your comment, John. I hadn't realised I'd actually read a few series this year, but you are right. I wouldn't say that it's typical behaviour for me to finish either, but then again, the Collins and Brashares books aren't typical reading for me. I'm more of a Margaret Laurence girl, generally speaking ;)

  2. Wow! We've been enjoying a lot of the same books! I can't wait to read through your archives as I have time in the next few days or weeks.

    1. Thank you, Samantha. We do seem to share the same taste in books! I hope you will visit again.
