Comments

  1. I loved Savvy! Didn’t so much love The Girl Who Drank the Moon, despite the buzz.

  2. Enjoy A Study in Charlotte. 🙂 I am intrigued by It’s OK Not to Share. Let me know if it’s worth reading.

  3. Kitchens of the Great Midwest is a favorite. But, I live in the areas talked about in the book which makes it more enjoyable, but I still loved his way of telling the story. I’d love to meet him. The Rachel Ray cookbook sounds interesting to me too! I usually like her recipes! I’ll have to look for that one at Half Price Books. Thanks for the link up!
