  1. Oh James! The guy does look like Burt! LOL well spotted.

    You got some lovely books this week, have fun with them.

    Also, I've never read Catching Fire, I just couldn't be bothered with it after Hunger Games - which barely passed muster for me.

  2. Awesome books! Love how excited you are to read them all :) (I would be too!)

    Happy happy reading!

  3. Yay for Virginia book bloggers!

  8. You made me laugh out loud with your comments about not reading Twilight or Harry Potter. Don't worry, we don't think less of you . . . LoL I might steal your idea of having a reading goal per month. I have so many series' that I haven't read yet!
