    What an amazing loot! The Bondwoman’s Narrative sounds extremely interesting and I really should finally read something by O’Connor! I feel Andersen’s fairy tales have always been part of my life. They were an important part of my childhood reading experience even before I could read myself. Hope you’ll enjoy them and all the other books in your loot!

    I love Ombria in Shadow. May be my favorite McKillip novel.

    I’ve never tried Patricia McKillip, but your enthusiasm is catching and I love the cover of that one. I’ve always pidgeon-holed her as romance fantasy for some reason. I’ll be investigating my library for something by her!

    I always learn about new authors and even genres from your Library Loot posts. I hope you post on “I am a Cat”. I have that on my to-read list and I had also thought it was long, but maybe I shouldn’t be so intimidated? I am reading at a snail’s pace nowadays.

    This week I reserved and picked up from the library The Secret Keeper by Kate Morton. It kept me up late at night reading. What an ending!

    I grew up in Norwich, yay for Julian! Norwich has an amazing cathedral and there’s a Julian statue outside and we were taught (very basic) details about her at school. I’ll have to take more photos when I go back in March. :)

Thank you for commenting! For a long while, my health precluded me replying to everyone. Yet I missed the conversation, so I'm now making an effort to reply again. It might take a few days though, and there will be times when I simply can't. Regardless, I always read and value what you say.
