  1. I think I will do this meme later. I haven't read any of yours to assist with recommending and getting you to want to read a few.

  2. Hey there--

    I really love that you are participating in Top Ten Tuesday but I have to be honest that I've gotten a lot of complaints about your comments and that you just have been leaving comments saying, "here's mine...and then your link" without saying anything else. I waited a few Top Ten Tuesdays before I said anything because I understand that sometimes you get busy and can't write too much on different memes. The general atmosphere of TTT seems to be one where people are interacting with the person's list..even if it's just glancing and commenting on a particular title and I think it's off-putting to some people that you are just link dropping the same sentence on different blogs.

    Please do not think I'm being rude or trying to start problems in this. As the moderator of the blog and the meme, I just want to make sure it runs smoothly. I want everyone to feel like TTT is a fun, discussion garnering posts. That's what I think people love about TTT is that people leave thoughtful comments rather than the "Nice haul" or "Great teaser!" that you get on a lot of other memes.

    Anyways, on to your list..READ MARCH! Oh my goodness. Such a unique perspective on Little Women and done so well that I feel like it fits in perfectly with Alcott's Little Women!

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog! How do you like Liz Curtis Higgs...have you read anything else by her? I've looked at her books (They generally have such great covers!) but I've never bought one.
