  1. I agree with you on the Kevin and Disgrace additions. Also, I must get around to reading Perfume. Have heard so much about it. Nice bookshelf pic!

  2. You added two of my favorites: Kevin and Small Island. Now if I can just figure out how to cross out, I’m going to do this! Thanks, Debra.

  3. I’ll have to admit, I’ve read very few of your additions, Debra, but I’m going to have to check them out. I’ve put my own list up on my blog.

  4. Oh, this is fun – and I see in your bookshelf you have one of my favourite books – Pig. Isn’t it sweet? Thanks for the tag, but Patti tagged me and I’m ashamed to say I can’t work out how to do strikethrough and underline – have been trying to copy it in but can’t get there. Argh. Still, I will persist!
