  1. Wow Janssen. You are amazing. I can proudly say that I have read 13 books (this year mind you) from your list. I feel a bit pathetic right now... :)

  2. Wow! How did you like P.S. I Love You? What are your thoughts on movies based on books? Do you like to see the movie first or read the book first? Does it matter?

  3. There's a book called Chasing Vermeer? I'm amused, simply because I once read a book by a different author called Chasing Cezanne. Hee.

    Impressive list, lady!
