And a special section of that library would have all the newest books available before they were actually published. Thanks, Binnie.

A lovely idea, Janice.

Alisha, it's a testament to the power of words, that Janga's friendship was treasured by so many who never met her in person, but connected in spirit.

PJ, she was a real touchstone of quality, wasn't she? And as you say, will be deeply missed. Thank you for all the support and love you gave her (and her friends) in the time leading up to her death.

Theo, you were another person who wrote to me about my first books, and thus always in my "special" category of people. Thanks.

Anne here, writing on behalf of all the word wenches in a special Sunday post, a tribute to Janga Rholetter — one of our long time wenchly readers and a friend to many of us here, readers as well as writers. Janga passed away suddenly last week — we knew she was desperately ill, but the speed of her passing took us all by surprise. Janga loved words; she loved stories and poetry and romance and writing. She was an intelligent and insightful reviewer — I suspect many of us here became addicted to her reviews and have added to... Continue reading

Mary, sometimes there's nothing better than diving into an old bookfriend. I need to cull my books and Im dreading it, because yes, maybe I haven't read that book in years — but I might want to!

Leah, thank you so much for the rundown on each of those authors. It's very helpful, and much appreciated.

Teresa, I enjoy time-slips too. I presume you've read wench Susanna's books.

Thanks, Leah -- lots of new-to-me authors there. It's been ages since I read Sue Grafton's books — I've forgotten where in the alphabet I'm up to. Might be time for a refresher.

Kareni, yes, my faves are her Ivy League ones, too.

Wow, Janice, what an excellent collection. I didn't know Home Fires had been cancelled — I really enjoyed that show. And I agree with you about the Jack Reacher novels — excellent page turners, but I'm not sure I'll ever reread them, as I do my favorite romances.

Thanks, Mary, it sounds fascinating. There are some wonderful young adult books around.

Thanks for following that up, Karin. They might be in the process of turning the old paperback into an e-book, so it might pop up eventually.

Thanks for those recommendation, Karin. The "Goody Two Shoes" title rings a bell — might check to see if I bought it last time. I have a buy now (while I remember) read later habit, and often it's a while before I read a book because I need to be in the mood for it. The Frances Murray one sounds interesting. I think some older books are interesting simply because they don't follow the usual pattern for the genre -- having been written before those patterns became established.

DB I've read and enjoyed the Outback Brides series, too. My faves were the Kelly Hunter and the Cathryn Hein ones. 'What You Did Not Tell' sounds fascinating. I know very little about that period as well. I'll skip the murdered children title -- am a terrible wimp

Wow, Kareni, as usual a huge list. Thanks so much for sharing. I have the Sarina Bowen book, but haven't read it yet. I enjoy her work.

Lillian, I also love the smart aleck Falco, but I do confess that I melt at Falco the father. There's a scene in the last Falco book where his wife simply hands him the baby, and then their other daughter climbs onto him and he's stuck, unable to argue or do anything except hold his daughters. There's another scene where his toddler daughter is distressed by an overheated bee, and Falco first tries giving it water, and no, it doesn't work, and so then he goes off and fetches some honey and feeds that to the bee, and it recovers and flies off -- and it's so sweet. His adopted daughter, still a bit feral from her life on the streets is watching from a distance, and you just know it's a huge moment for her. Thanks for the recommendation of John Maddox Roberts -- I'll check it out.

Sue, they're fabulous, aren't they? I now have all the Patricia Briggs books — I also love her Alpha and Omega series.

Anne here, hosting this month's What We're Reading post, and what a line-up we have: science fiction, dual timeline, historical romance, women's fiction, non-fiction, and murder mysteries, with quite a few wenches turning to crime. Mary Jo here. I recently reread a book I'd read in the past, and I liked it even better the second time around. John Scalzi's Agent to the Stars is science fiction, but not the kind with ray guns and evil invading aliens. Instead, it's funny and very entertaining and even has some romance. Scalzi speaks amusingly about how he wrote the book in 1997... Continue reading

Kerin I think in my neck of the woods (Australia and NZ) it's a bit of a rite of passage to go backpacking and explore the world. It's a wonderful thing to do, I think. Apart from getting to know other cultures, it teaches you a lot about people — and yourself. It does you a lot of good to have to rely on your own resources. Plus it's fun

I get my itchy feet from both my parents, Teresa. They adored travel and would head off at the slightest excuse. My older siblings, on the other hand, haven't done nearly so much travelling.

Sue, that's why I wrote this post -- feeling homebound, except by deadline rather than old age while so many of my friends were away on their travels. Glad you enjoyed the story.

Lovely to hear a few tales of the conference, Susanna. I'm sorry I couldn't attend.
