  1. I’d love to be a reader of nominated prizes, but when I look at any of the lists, I just don’t always understand what they are doing. I don’t seem to do well with the more literary prize-winning books. I hope your illness goes away soon so you can join the chaos of the holiday season!

    • Oh, Sandy, I think you would really like some of the Orange Prize books. My cold is getting better every day but I may not be able to truly kick it before the holiday break. Have a great week!

  2. I’m definitely reading for Orange January…can’t wait to tackle some of these books! I hope to read River of Smoke this month – looking forward to reading your review of it! I also was sick this past week – but I had the flu and it knocked me down for days. Glad you’re starting to feel better, too.

    Have a great week!

  7. This year is going by so fast! I’m definitely in for the TBR Double Dare challenge and Orange January.Take care of yourself.

  8. I hope you’re feeling better, Gavin! As for Orange January, I’ll definitely join in if I have enough books that qualify on my TBR.

    • All you need is one Orange Prize book to join in! I am getting excited about the TBR Double Dare but first have to get through 1Q84. I just picked it up from the library.
