********************

The books below are not necessarily in the order I have planned to read them.  

I normally read in order of publication or tour date.

And....these are not for reading in the upcoming week.  They are books into and including all of 2014.

The "list" is a means of keeping me organized.  A visual display helps a lot for organization along with my Excel lists. 

     

How was your reading week?

  8. Hi Elizabeth,

    I hope that you had a great time away and that you are now feeling a little more refreshed and relaxed as Christmas approaches.

    I couldn't pick anything from your list to highlight as my next want to read, as they all look good to me.

    I see that you have 'The Clock Of Life' by Nancy Klann Moran, in your selection. This one I have read and thoroughly enjoyed, so I hope that you feel the same way about it.

    I am wishing yourself and your family a Very Happy & Peaceful Christmas.

    Yvonne
