  12. All -- I have to say, The Paper Garden is so delicious to hold -- it's this nice chunky hardcover, but smaller than the average harcover, with full color plates on the inside! It's *amazing*!

  13. I'll be interested in hearing what you think about the Sally Gunning book. Our book group read another of her novels a couple of years ago. Enjoy!

  18. Those look great! Good luck with Moby Dick! I read it in high school and sometimes wonder if I'd like it better as an adult (not being forced to read it).
