I think you know my mom loves those Sharon Shinn books, too!

Her favorite book of all time is A Tale of Two Cities.

Great list of books! :) Our mom also likes #2, 9, and 11. Her all-time favourite books are my L.E. Modesitt Jr. She doesn't like #1 on your mom's list because she had to study it in grade 9 in school, and that took all the enjoyment out of it.

Momma likes #1 & #8, too. We wish Momma would read more, but she says it's hard because whenever she does, somekitty chews on her book and that drives her nuts. Whatever.

We gave you guys an award today.

I can't read Stephen King's scary stuff, it gives me nightmares! :(

The only one I have read was To Kill a Mockingbird... an amazing book. I have been meaning to read Dune though.... hmmm interesting idea for a blog, I may just steal it.
Gus and Indy love it when I read too, they get to snuggle on me!

Oooh! Books! My mom loves reading books and I like to chew them. When mom reads I love to steal her bookmark and run around with it.
Love Clover xo

I can read To Kill A Mockingbird over and over and never get tired of it.
