  1. Oh, I hope you get the chance to read Calling Me Home!

    1. Me too! You have totally convinced me I need to. :)

  2. AWWWW yeah! Was so thrilled that you drove up!! yay!!

    1. YAY! It was so much fun! So glad I did it.

  3. Thanks for the linkage, Becca! The signing you went to looked like a lot of fun.

    1. It was a blast. I loved meeting Lenore and everyone else!

  4. Literary Rogues sounds so interesting-like a great book to just pick up and read a chapter at a time in between other reads. I need to add that to my list.

  5. I'm a huge Shirley Jackson fan, so I hope you read The House on Haunted Hill, which I think is a little bit better than the other you have listed. Also her collection of short stories, that includes The Lottery, is a must read as well.

  6. Love the picture of you and Lenore!!! And, I would love to read that Shirley Jackson book; actually any Jackson book at this point! I've heard such great things about her work!
