Yay, glad to see you joined! I am wondering what you'll think of A Lucky Child. I really enjoyed it.

I did her Spring Challenge and I like the "ease" of it. I also just love her graphics. I might sign up for this one as I can probably accomplish it with what I still have left to read! I'm hooked on these challenges and I like doing ones I know I can finish! Is that lame or what?

Jo JO...this is a fun challenge; enjoy.

I am reading A Channge of Altitude now, and the 1st half DRAGGGGGGS. I would have given up, except for the fact Shreve is one of my favorite authot's -- i've read all of her books. I still have another 100 pages to go, but it's better now.

That's a great list. I'm with Lilly on A Lucky Child. I thought it was wonderful. My Antonia is one of my all-time favorites. I have a lot of all-time favorites, but don't let that sway you. ;)

Have fun reading!

I loved Michelle Moran's other two books. I'll be interested to see if her new book is just as good. I'm sure it will be. Happy reading!
