  2. You've read some wonderful titles this summer!

  3. I am so looking forward to reading George soonest. Great to see your reading list! You're in for a reading treat.

  4. That's a great looking reading list. I loved Anderson's Chains and the second book Forge. Now I'm eagerly waiting for Ashes!
