Great blogpost! So glad you know about Eighth Day Books and their amazing catalog! Somehow one came unsolicited to me in the mail a few months ago, and after reading its great annotations and salivating about way too many books I decided I wanted to read, yesterday I scootered over to a friends house and gave her the catalog, as many of its recommendations are right up her alley also. (Do you remember, in days of yore, a wonderful outfit/catalog called THE COMMON READER? Gosh, how I miss that.)

Also, thanks for creating the Suggested Readings section of your blog.

Keep on a-coming with the blogposts!

Cal
