Wow! I haven't read or even heard of any of your fave books! Looks like I have some more to add to my "to-read" list! Thanks for the award :)

Glad you had fun with the award, Peggy. Now I'm off to check out those lucky recipients to whom you passed the award!

Congrats on this award Peggy :)

Those books all sound nice, they have lovely titles. Is that in order of your MOST favourite?

Peggy Shumway said...

My problem is I like them all but in different ways. Some I like for the way they use words, others for the genius of story. I'm sure I am forgetting other great reads. I can't decide which is first or last.

I adore Kate Morton. I met her at a book signing a couple of years ago and she was adorable. I'm a huge fan.

Like Britney, I haven't heard or read these books, but congrats for the Booker Award. You see, Peggy Ann, you are going places.

Thanks for thinking of me for the Booker award! That is so nice of you but it already came my way and I blogged about it. But I loved reading your list of books because now I have great ideas for summer reading!
