  1. Quite a nice reading haul there, thank goodness for summer holidays and extra reading time!

  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!

  5. What a fabulous reading list - and I love that you included humor in that recipe ... so essential, and yet so easy to forget!
