I liked that one a lot, too, Stephanie! His wife is who does the illustrations, and his sister, Maile Meloy, has a YA book called The Apothecary that I really liked. She also has several adult novels, but I havent read any of those -- I do plan on it, though.

Hi Kathie, When you click on the preview of the word art, it will take you to my downloads folder on Yousendit. Once there, you will see a button that says Download. Just click on that button and it will download the file to your computer. Let me know if you have any additional problems.
Youre welcome -- thanks for stopping by!
Thanks E -- I had a lot of fun making them!

I agree, Beth -- one of the best things about Goodreads is that it has really pushed me to read outside of my comfort zones. Before, when I had just word-of-mouth or the librarys latest releases shelf to rely on, I tended to just look for books from my go-to authors. But now, theres so much more that Ill read -- particularly nonfiction, which I never read before Goodreads!

I love seeing the stats. Its such a neat way to look back at a collection of books. I tend to go with my gut on rankings -- the 5-star books end up being those that I just loved reading the entire time and really didnt want to see end, even if there are some technical or style issues that I find fault with. I love my e-reader for any number of reasons -- but late-night reading is a big plus, thats for sure. And yes, I would LOVE to be able to get together with you. One of these days, my friend, well make it happen.

Hugs and prayers to you and your family, Elizabeth. It is amazing the gifts that life will give to us if we are just open enough to see them.

I won William's book from Goodreads when it first came out, as part of their First Reads program. It's a wonderfully inspirational story, and the book is really enjoyable to read -- his voice comes through crystal-clear, and his enthusiasm for learning is really contagious. I highly recommend it. Thanks for working to make his story more widely known.

I do the same with library books. They stay on our nightstand until finished, then they go straight to a bag hanging on a hook on the inside of our coat closet door. My girls are older so they dont check out lots of picture books anymore. I limit them to two books at a time though because from experience i've learned they won't get more than that read if the books are 200 pages approximately or more.

What an awesome giveaway! Love so many of your selections!
The Girl Who... is just magical, really and truly. Its one of those great little novels where I loved every detail. Then again, Ive always loved fairy tales, so it checks all those boxes for me. At first, I wasnt sure I was going to like Family Fang -- it had a whiff of too much literary fiction to it, but the story and characters both really grew on me. I do get to read a lot during the holidays. I probably read 5 or 6 novels just over Thanksgiving alone. Ill get two full weeks off work at Christmas, so Ill be running close to a book a day (for books in the 300 page range -- bigger than that and theyll likely take two days). Then again, we dont have to do a lot of traveling or anything during Christmas and Im not responsible for any big meals or anything, so that helps.
