  1. Good list! I loved Summer of '69 and started An Elderly Lady Is Up To No Good but didn't finish it.

  2. I have the Patchett and Russo books on my list, too, but that's not the most intriguing thing to me about your list....haven't seen a Harold Robbins title on a list for al long, long time. Congrats, that's cool.

  3. Merry Christmas! I've only read two of those books. I suspect Ask Again, Yes will be on my list of favorites as well.

  5. I love Ann Patchett and want to read that novel, and I read The Elderly Lady Is Up To No Good and did not like it.

  6. I've got a couple of these on my Kindle to read - maybe even in 2020. Ha! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and your family, Diane. See you in 2020.

    The list is lovely. A Harold Robbin. I've not seen one for simply decades.

  15. Excellent list, Diane! I've read (and loved) 5 of these and am currently reading Chances Are. Holding off on making my list until I finish... it's a contender.
