    Wow, I haven’t really heard of any of these. I’ll have to check them out, especially INTO THE FREE.

    There are so many blogs listed over there, Beckie! I wish I had time to leisurely go through all of them.

    My e-mail alert to this post came yesterday and I just now got a chance to open it. So many of these books are on my TBR list, but I haven’t actually read any of them yet. I’m saving this post for future reference. And I’ll leave a message for you on my blog.

      It is a bit overwhelming to see all the books considered the best! I read somewhere that over 900,000 books are printed per year now! Gives new meaning to “so many books, so little time”!
