    How about "Christy" by Catherine Marshall? It certainly had great appeal to me when I was in my early 20's.

  2. Kay ~ Thanks for the suggestion! :)

  3. Oh, now this is one I definitely want to join in on!!

  4. Les ~ And we will definitely be glad to have you! :) I look forward to seeing your list, Les.

  5. I hope you listen to Coraline on CD (or your i-pod) someday. I'd love to hear what you think of it. Gaiman reads his book so well. It's a short, wonderfully creepy story.

  6. 3M ~ Okay...I'll plan on listening to Caroline. I'm off to highlight it in bolded purple. :)

  7. I hope you read BODY BAGS by Christopher Golden. Let me know what you think / thought!

  8. Little Willow ~ Ewww, thanks for the encouragement on Body Bags! Now I may HAVE to read it. :)


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
