I have "A Bend in the Stars" on hold at the library will be 6 months before I can read it.

Tried to read "A Mistress of the Ritz" and didn't finish it, not very interesting.

Thanks for the list.

I trust the New York Times
They have editors who choose books with all objectivity and excellence
I think it is a wonderful group of nominations
I salute you on this subject
