  9. These all look intriguing--not that I judge books by their covers. But I read Joe Queenan's funny article in the NY Times Book Review yesterday in which he hypothesized that he seemed to read books with pleasing (rather than ugly) covers. It made me think about my own habits. :)

  10. I read a review in a magazine about the Sarah Hall one and it sounded really good. I have one of her other books, which I still need to read.
