  2. Just stopped by to say hi. Your blog looks great. I always read your new posts on my friends link page so I haven't seen it in a while. I love your title graphic. Good job.


  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment! You have a very eclectic book list lined up for the challenge. I see you have a link to Libri-Vox...isn't that a great site?

  4. Thank you for your comment. Yes, I realised after I had posted that my list was quite ambitious. Well, I can still try!

    I have never read, or even heard, of Cranford(Is that how you spell it?) I have read Wives and Daughters though.

    I hope you get through all of your books!
