  1. You have some books on here I want to read. The Moonstone for one. I did not put Wilkie Collins' books on my Classics List, I wish I had. Also My Cousin Rachel and The Deep Blue Goodbye. That John D. MacDonald book has been on my TBR forever.

    I recently read The Grand Sophy and enjoyed it. I am new to Georgette Heyer's Regency romances and picked up a few more to read at the recent book sale.


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
