I haven't read any of these, although you certainly have a very interesting list of books. I have The Postmistress on my TBR pile and am looking forward to reading that.

Have a great reading week!

Like your About Me says, you do read very broadly :)

I've got The Postmistress on hold at the library, but I'm like #161 or something.

Have a good week. Lynne's Book Reviews

Oh, and my husband is begging me to read People of the Book. He absolutely loved it.

A former boss has been begging me to read People of the Book for the last year. I am chugging through a Chunkster right now so I don't now if I'll get to anything else this week, but People has been at the top of my TBR list for many months now! All three of these I really, really hope to get to this month.

The Complete History of Sesame Street? How interesting! That is from when I was growing up.

Have a super fantastic week ;)

I loved People of the Book and I've heard really good things about The Postmistress and The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott. I hope you enjoy them and your other books.

The biography of Charles Schulz sounds interesting. I love Charlie Brown and the gang.

Tammy said...

Awwww the peanuts gang-that brings back some memories. How sad that my kids will never fully understand how exciting those holiday specials were-It's the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown....Looking forward to your review on this one.

Oh, I want to read The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott!

Wonderful reading days to you!

I can't wait to hear what you think about The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott! I picked it up while browsing in the bookstore today (like I really needed to be in there with my TBR pile tumbling over every time I restack it!) but had to buy Girl Who Chased The Moon instead. Read The Postmistress few weeks ago - I love your reading lists! As far across the board, if not more so than mine! Way cool Carin, way cool!
