    BTW, I am adding ebooks–the read on your pc kind–copies of these titles when they are available–some are and some aren’t. I’m also adding other titles by these authors as well–again when they’re available. If you don’t find a title or author in the ebook collection, you can assume that it wasn’t available as of 10 13 2010.

    So many good books and good writers on your list – thanks for including House of Hope and Fear. Read on!

    Just finished “Wanna Get Lucky” based on Adult Reads. It was pretty darn good, reminded me alot of Janet Evanovich. It is obvious that the author is from Las Vegas.
