    I don’t have it on my list but want to read Books for Living, too,Earl. It sounds very good. Read Christie’s AndThen There Were None soon, one of my favorites! Thanks. Your list covers such a wide range. I have bookmarked it to return.

    This is an impressive list Earl! We are looking forward to many of the same books this year. Ann Patchett is an author I want to read more of too. Everything I have read so far has wowed me. I even have a few unread books of hers on my shelf that I just need to find time for!

    On Writing is amazing as is Maus. I really enjoyed Rapunzel’s Revenge and Calamity Jack. I hope you do, too.

    Great list, I am also looking forward to Scar Island, and although I didn’t include it, HiLo and Masterminds will hopefully find the way to my reading list. I really liked the Nathan Hale titles and I hope you do as well. Happy reading!

    A really great list. The 3rd Hilo is going to cause major “I get it first” wars in my room! Can’t wait to read Scar Island.
