  7. Fantastic mailbox, Audra. Can't wait for your review of The Summerton Women. The cover of Girl Reading is lovely - is it a work of fiction? I read the first Maisie Dobbs book last year and will definitely continue with the series.

    1. It's a novel, or novella -- a series of vignettes about women reading, inspired by art. I'm really excited about that!

    2. Carrie: Your enthusiasm for the Maisie books sold me on them, and I know I'm missing a bit by jumping in so late to the series, I figured it couldn't hurt. I'm very excited to start The Receptionist!

  15. What a wonderfully varied selection of books! The Receptionist, Girl Reading and the Jacqueline Winspear books look great! I'm not so sure what I think of the Contact trio but I'm interested in your reviews.
    The Arsonists Guide to Writer's Homes is a hilarious title. And it sounds intriguing!

    Have a happy time reading them all, Audra!
