  1. The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society book seems to be getting SO much attention and everyone I know who has read it has loved it! I'm feeling pressed. ;D

    Thanks for sharing!

  2. I read a book by Dan Chaon (actually part of a book -- it's a long story why I couldn't finish it), but I did like his style.

  3. I was blown away by Wally Lamb's latest book, too. Honestly, that guy is incredible-- I had a wonderful five minute conversation with him years ago at the National Book Festival-- and I never fail to LOVE anything he writes. Great list you have here!
