Comments:
I didn't catch this list when you first posted it -- you'll forgive me for browsing in the archives, I hope!

You will love, love, love "I Capture the Castle." It's my new favorite book. And I hated "Where the Heart Is" with almost as much vigor as I loved "Castle." I'm eager to hear your thoughts.

And I'm glad to see I've moved a little closer to the top of your TBR list. :)
