    Sulz: I thought they were both just ok. I buy books by the bagful from Salvation Army and read them at my leisure. Neither would be one I would have paid full price for, but I could say I got my money’s worth when I pay a quarter apiece! 🙂

    I also kept a list of the books I read in 2006, and I just posted about it a day or so ago. 🙂

    Which one was your favorite?

    I love Maeve Binchy. A book I recomend is a Dive from Clausen Pier. It’s excellent.

    I think my favorite was Swan House. Runners up are The Virgin Knots, The Birth of Venus and The Secret Lives of Bees.

    I really enjoy the Jeffrey Archer books and have a few on my shelf to read this year. Also looking forward to reading the Gregory Maguire books: Wicked, Son of a Witch, Mirror Mirror and Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister.
