  1. OMG! Great Questions and Answers. I'mcurious, how do you read in the bath? Doesn't the book get wet?

  2. Thanks 🙂

    Hasn't happened yet (touch wood) 😀

    Off to bath 😛

  3. I could not read in the bath. I reluctanly answered the questions as well. My answers are short and to the point. I like it when we are asked on topic and we can discuss it in depth, this was nothing more than a survey. Anyhoo, Here is my Booking Through Thursday

  4. You guys should give it a shot! Bubblebath, books, wine… what can be better?

  5. I loved Spirit Bound too! Can't wait to read Last Sacrifice! 🙂

  6. You said that you are too intimidated to start: A Thousand Splendid Suns. May I suggest that you listen to this book in an audio format (books-on-CD, playaway, etc). I was so glad that I did. There are lost of words that I had no idea how to pronounce, etc. and it was a magical experience, a very good book.
