And I even know those books, unlike some of the books listed in Entertainment Weekly.

Okay, how weird is this? I haven't read any of the books on your 2006 six list, but I have read two of the 2007 books. ;-)

Guess I better find some time to read, huh?

Unfortunately STRAY doesn't come out until after I return from Japan or I could read it on the plane. :D

Maybe I'll stockpile Vicki's books until May. XD
