I adore books. I have a Kindle but it’s astonishing how many times I buy the book, rather than the e-version. And I have too many, at least when I move house!
I adore Ann Patchett. I want to visit her bookshop- it helps that I also want to visit Nashville. So I’m reblogging this for all such reasons, but mostly I’m reblogging this post because I wanted to send the list to all my friends…and this is an easy way to do it!
I’ve read The Cuckoo’s Calling and I liked it a lot. I know Jon Scieszka from his retellings for children- “The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs, told by A. Wolf”, “The Frog Prince Continued” and others. They are hilarious and clever.
I plan to read several of these titles and I’d really like to hear if you have read some already, or your response to any you do read.
Have you read Ann Patchett?

I love Ann Patchett. She is one of my top five favorite authors. I think her opening an independent bookstore in Nashville is marvelous.
I’m so glad to discover a fellow fan! She is not only a fabulous (in the true meaning of the word) writer, but a great person. Have you read the blog by the dogs of the bookshop? a hoot!
Who are your other favourites?
