  32. I just tried to comment, and it said my cookie was disabled. Aah! I'm so NOT tech savvy. Sorry if I comment twice! Please delete one comment if I do! Let me try and remember what I said...

    Some of my favorites are books by Charles Dickens and Jane Austen. My style/voice is quite different--I only wish I could write the way they did!

    Also, I totally understood what you meant, wondering if you'd love the book the same way as an adult. I wondered that with THE SECRET GARDEN, and I love it just as much! It's one of my very favorites!

  33. Dawn - I have to read Secret Garden again too - I know I've read it but I don't actually have any memory of the story.

    There have been a few troubles with folks commenting since I went back to the pop up box - I'm not sure how to fix it!
