  3. I have Left Neglected on Sparky (Kindle), and I do want to read Still Alice. I'm also a fan of the Jennifer Crusie books, but it's been awhile.

    Enjoy your week!


  4. The Immortal LIfe is a good one, it keeps appearing in my life through random conversations!

  5. I want to read Still Alice and am trying to get my book discussion group to select it. I enjoyed Bet Me when I read it last year and just finished another book by Crusie this past week.

    I'll have to check out your list of 2012 favorites. I can't believe we are halfway through the year already!

  6. Still Alice is on my wishlist.

    Wishing you a great reading week!

  7. Bet Me is amazing…love it. When you read the end – its romance and krispy kremes. Amazingness!!
