Thanks for taking the challenge with us! I'm seeing a lot of The Inheritance of Loss on people's lists - eager to read some reviews of this one, and others. The only one on your list I've read is The Alchemist, so I'll definitely be paying attention!

Good luck!

I loved The Elegance of the Hedgehog and passed it on to anyone who would read it. I thought the book was a gem. Hope you enjoy it too!

Isn't it liberating to mark festering items off the To Do list? I hope the challenge is both fun and enlightening!

I'm done with 4 - so have to read 1 more from my list before the end of May to stay on track!
