    Welcome, Julie! Looking forward to your reviews!

    =) Jill

    Hi Jill, Thank you for your welcome and for sharing the challenge in the beginning. It not only took me ages to get my initial choices sorted out, which I so much enjoyed doing, but, sadly it took me an age to figure out how to use the blogger here! Sad girl I know!
    I went out and bought The Color Purple (half way through it) and Blind Assassin. The latter was due to your great review - thanks! I went to the library to try and borrow The Color Purple and there was a loooong reserve list for it, word must be spreading this side of the pond! The Blind Assassin was out on loan too. I went to the book shop instead, I much prefer my own books, don't you!

    Finished Color Purple yesterday. Wow, I need to reflect before writing my review. have a good weekend! My next Book Awards Reading Challenge will be The Blind Assassin - yes!
