  3. Thanks once again, Vikki, for mentioning EMOTIONAL GEOLOGY. You’ve been faithful to that book since it was published in 2005! I’ve really appreciated your support over the years & the plugs you’ve given it. πŸ™‚

    • Awwww, thanks Linda, but, that is because it is an EXCELLENT book! πŸ™‚ The only book I’ve ever read in one day πŸ™‚

      I saw a copy of Star Gazing at the BookCrossing UnConvention last Saturday. Was tempted to pick it up, but decided that wasn’t fair, wanted someone else to enjoy it. I hope whoever picked it up does and you get another review πŸ™‚

  4. I have one book I hold close to my heart – The BFG by Roald Dahl. A classic that I have on my bookshelf and I hope my kids read it too. I certainly hint at it all the time lol. My recently discovered new fave author is Chris Carter – he has written a 4 book series; crime, whodunnit – and I am itching to get my hands on his 5th book which wont be out till next year. Too painful!! πŸ™‚

      Yeah, you’ve become a bit of an addict for this Chris Carter. It’s not my kind of stuff but I will definitely look him up. Hubby does love a thriller πŸ˜‰

      Lol, patience my dear πŸ˜‰
