  2. A great list, I recently saw the film Orlando at the BFI in London and it was great - I'm sure the book is even better. Judging by your reading list you'd probably enjoy reading "Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day." I highly recommend it!

  3. Congratulations! Nice list. I think you'll enjoy Angela's Ashes. Makes me want to read it again. Another autobiography I think you'd really dig is Blackbird, by Jennifer Lauck. I read the entire thing in one sitting. I couldn't put it down. :) Hugs.

  5. Orlando is one of the most fascinating and mesmerizing books I have ever read. These are all wonderful purchases. I have not heard of a few of these and I will definitely be checking them out! You are one of the few people I trust when it comes to book (or music) suggestions. Lol.

    PS. I gave you an award on my blog. Your posts always make me smile (well, except for the sad ones, lol).

  6. Nice list.

    I am currently reading Sophie's World. It poses some interesting philosophical questions.

    Happy reading. :)
