I haven't read a single one of those books but I do own a couple of them.

Sandra Byrd

Thank you for including me! Happy New Year!

Anna

Great post! A few of these are on my to-read list, and you've just reminded my daughter that she wanted to read Beta. Happy New Year!

Deb

Thanks for the comments, Ladies! I love knowing the list meant something to you. Happy New Year to you!

Nancy

Deb, I love comments too. I just posted my 2013 list, and when I looked back and saw your early comment (You're from Lenoir!) I had to stop in and say hello. I will mark this page so I can come back and check to see what you are reading. I don't know that I'll ever run out of things to read--even if I am placed under house arrest--but I keep finding new ideas!
