  1. Hi Barbara, thank you for including my review here. There are some lovely books among these posts and, I must say that it is really rather fun to see what books other bloggers are enjoying. I have just finished The Complete Works of Edgar Allan Poe and book 2 in the Loves Register family saga by Leslie Tate. I started The Invisible Man by H. G. Wells today. I have three book reviews to write.

    1. Hi Robbie – you’re welcome! I’m looking forward to seeing your upcoming reviews. I have read some Poe, but not the complete works. I’m glad you enjoyed seeing what everyone else is reading!

  2. Thanks for supporting many indie authors, including me in the lineup. I’m glad most of the authors I support deliver top-notch reading. Thanks again, Barbara!

  3. Thanks for including me in this post of fabulous bloggers, Barbara. I’ve read some of these, but am happy to have new books to add to my library. 🙂 ❤️

    1. Hi Lauren – I’m like you, nomatter how many books are on my TBR list I still like adding more! Thank you for stopping by and reading. I hope you are doing well 🙂

  4. Thanks for the links to good bloggers. I know most of them, but haven’t heard from some of them in a while. Better check out what they’re up to. Beyond reading books, of course. 🤓

    1. Hi Ally – thank you for stopping by and so sorry for the late reply. When does life become not so busy? I’m glad you liked the links and I like your comment about “beyond reading books” – hahaha 🙂

    1. Hi Betsy – oh I’m glad I could point you to another Gladwell video. I haven’t tried him out yet, but maybe during my next walk I’ll cue a few up! Thank you for stopping by 🙂

      1. Funny thing: the Gladwell vid I’d been watching was ending. I thought, “I should look for that one BCM listed.” Then it was the next one to pop up! Not the best one, so far. I prefer when he’s giving talks in front of an audience, not this interview format, but it’s still interesting stuff. 🙂

      2. That’s interesting. Well you know how our phones and computers listen to us talk, maybe they’re also reading our WordPress comments and saw that we’d been talking about that Gladwell video! I have been talking about getting a digital piano and the next day I got a letter about a piano sale.

  5. Little was one of our book club choices last year – not exactly a book you can say you enjoy but it was certainly engrossing. Carey does a brilliant job of recreating the atmosphere of Paris – rats and all – and his illustrations are wonderful

  6. Oohh … Barbara, it’s great to see what everyone is reading and enough here to keep me busy for the rest of the year! I loved Pam’s ‘Flashes of Life’ and just about to reread it again – tissues to hand. Late to the post but I wondered if you’ve heard of ‘West With Giraffes’ – one of my new favourite books this year. Astonishing and enlightening plus a terrific true story!

    1. Hi Annika – I’m late in getting back to you here – so sorry! I haven’t heard of West With Giraffes – I’m going to look it up. Thanks so much for stopping by to read 🙂 Hope you are doing well!
