I received for review "Lodestone Book One: The Sea of Storms" by Mark Whiteway from the author.

The Lemon Tree is on my wishlist.

To counter balance the large number of academic journal articles I'm reading, I read a bunch of books off my wishlist. Here's what I'm reading this week.

Jennifer and Puss reboots--Unfortunately, I am not loving Lemon Tree as much as I had hoped.

Sheila--I think you would like Pictures of Hollis Woods

Jan--Pictures of Hollis Woods was a real surprise for me, but a good surprise

Laurel-Rain--Ah, your list contains a Kennedy book; always very interesting

Tribute--I hope your book is an interesting one
