The Glenn Miller Conspiracy -- What a great title! I'll have to check that out.

A new Ruth Reichl...yea! It is getting harder and harder to keep my promise not to buy new books when there are so many good ones coming out.

Margot 4/4/09, 4:10 PM  

A couple of yours got my attention: Is this a new Ruth Reichl? I'll read anything by her. And the Walt Longmire character I love. I only have one so I'll have to catch up. Looks like you had a great book week.

Oooh! A new book on Eleanor of Aquitaine...she's my fave woman in history. Now I'll have to check it out! Thanks!

Mimdless crap.

I'm interested to hear your opinions on The Monsters of Templeton - I read it a few months ago, and enjoyed it, although it did have a few drawbacks - well worth reading though.

The Housekeeper and the Professor is on my mental wishlist - will your review persuade me to buy a copy now?

I'm looking forward to reading your opinions!
