  7. Oh, I like this one. I've accumulated lots of great books I want to read now on GR, but just haven't got to them yet. Is it just my own "bucket list" or is there really a list somewhere I'm supposed to pick from?

  8. Gina, You make your own bucket list with whatever books you want to read. I hear you on the GRs lists! Mine are out of control :P

It's all about friendly conversation here at Small Review :) I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Be sure to check back again because I do make every effort to reply to your comments here.

Because I am absolutely terrible about following through with blog awards, I can't in good conscience accept any more. Thank you very much for thinking of me though!
