  1. You got some good books in that stash. Our library only lets you check out books for 2 weeks and I'd never get all of those read that fast.

  2. That's a great pile! I have Madonnas of Leningrad on my TBR shelf...I'll be curious what you think of Whatever Happened to Anna K, since I love AK so much! :)

  3. * Kathy, I have to say I can't complain because my library gives us three weeks to keep books out.
    Though the fines are nothing to laugh about.:)

  5. You've got some really good books there. The Madonnas of Lenningrad was awesome. I have Late Nights on Air but still haven't read it. I hope to this year.

  8. My library gives us 4 weeks, with the option of three renewals except if someone else has requested the book.

    Good list!

  9. That's an impressive pile. I'm not sure I've heard of any of them. Probably should rectify that...
