  1. Lol, so many variations of "Jennifer!" :)

  2. Wow! That's not quite so short report you have here. I hope you had the best time in India because that's what counts. Not to mention that you still managed to read as many books as you did.

  3. I agree with Lilly - how do you do it? Did you have a wonderful time on your trip? I thought maybe we'd get to hear something about it.

  5. Can't wait to see what you thought of "Bitter Is the New Black." Working on your color challenge, eh?

  6. You've read some good books (or are in the process). I will always remember The Color Purple.

  7. I'm hoping to read The Color Purple for the first time before the end of the year!! Can't wait!! Thanks for the mention by the way!!

  8. It never ceases to amaze me how many books you can read at one time! Can't wait to hear what you think of The Color Purple!

  9. Woo Hoo! Go me! Adore that I'm a top commenter that's super exciting. :)

    What an extensive bunch of lists you've got going. It always amazes me how many books people read in such a short period of time. I'm such a slow reader it's a miracle I get one done a week. Hope next month is as good as the last!

  10. Wow! That was some reports! I can't wait to see your review of Jane Austen: An Illustrated Treasury.

  11. I'll look forward to your review of Bitter is the New Black- hope you liked it! :-)

  12. Your Short Reports are always so incredible - although I don't think short is an accurate name for them! You always manage to get so much done!

  13. Forget about us--I want more posts from YOU. Particulary, PICTURES!

    Also, I don't mind sharing 4th place w/ Jenners, but one time I accidently wrote the word verification in as my name. I thought it was too funny so I didn't recomment. SO. That means that I actually had 16 comments...or at least 15.5. Just sayin'.
