Hi Bonnie! Sorry, haven't read any of these. You were right, you have a lot of good stuff on your sidebar! Going to read now...

I read Small Wars, and The Little Stranger, and liked both. I wrote reviews on my blog.
I just finished The Help and it was very good.
Waiting to get the Lorrie Moore book from the library.
