  1. Bailey White! D.E. Stevenson! Elizabeth Winthrop, Dorothy Gilman, and Cynthia Voigt! There are so many of my favorites on this list that I just know I'll enjoy the others.

    Thank you for keeping track of what you read and for publishing these lists. I'm going through all of them and madly adding to my Shelfari shelf of "books I plan to read" which is how I keep track.

  2. Clair, thank you, thank you! I'm so touched and pleased that you are doing this. Each author you mentioned is a huge favorite of mine. I wish Bailey W. would write some more. I've thought of taking a year to read just DE Stevenson. It might take that long, and what a nice time I'd have. I've read all the Mrs Pollifax books, and one of her others, A Nun in the Closet. How I love them. Eliz W. actually left a comment on my blog!! And I need to get back to Cynthia V.'s Tillerman series. I've seen Shelfari on some blogs, and I think it is so pretty, as well as being really helpful. Thanks again for writing, Clair.

Now that I am a grandmother, it seems that I am often late in replying to your most-appreciated comments. But I read them as soon as they come in, and I will write as soon as I can. Please do come back and check. I love these blogging conversations. A little addendum - I've just spent quite a long time catching up with dear notes you left me months ago!! I do hope you can get back to read them. And I'm trying to be much more prompt now!

Also, you may comment on any post, no matter how old, and I will see it.
