Happy Friday to you all!

Congratulations to cranberrysoda! Send me your contact info, and I'll get those books mailed out to you.

What a great week. I love my readers -- for a variety of reasons -- but today, I love you all because you have such rockin' taste in comfort reads (which, of course, is highly individual, though I found myself nodding along with all your suggestions, from Anne of Green Gables to Anne McCaffery, and oh so many others).

I think there must be a secret language between readers who love the same books. All you have to do is say a title or a name, and it's like a coded handshake that no one else who hasn't read -- or loved -- those books will ever understand. So if I say that I adore Meredith Ann Pierce and the Darkangel Trilogy, someone out there will know what I'm talking about, without being told -- and if I tell you that I wish Pat Zettner had written more than one book, a sequel to The Shadow Warrior, someone else will understand why. Maybe not more than a handful of someones -- but one would be enough.

So, anyway. I'm going to snuggle in for the night, have a nice supper, write some words, and watch the series ::sob:: finale of Stargate Atlantis. McKay! Sheppard! Teyla! Ronin! I don't care if you are getting movies! I'll miss you all!

OMG YES! Meredith Ann Pierce rocks! :D I love all her books. the "Tanglewood" book is awesome, and so is the Firebringer series, but you're right, the Darkangel trilogy is made of pure awesome.

These contests were great for the book recommendations and comments alone. I've made a lot of new additions to my reading list.

Happy reading, cranberrysoda! That's a tasty collection of titles.

I'm too late for the giveaway (but that's okay) The Witch of Blackbird Pond was a book I read many, many times. Other books include, The Silver Chair, by CS Lewis. I have no idea why that book, among his many, stood out, but it did. Also, any book by Laura Ingalls Wilder, but especially, Little House in the Big Woods. Most books in the OZ series, most especially Tik Tok in Oz and Glinda of Oz. From the Mixed Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiller. (sp?)

But when I was a girl, I listened to stories too, because I had a lot of LPs that were narrative, so I have to add George C Scott's A Christmas Carol and the Smother's Brohter's "American History," as well as Steve Martin's "Cruel Shoes" to the list.
