  1. Love your fun lists! I am also working on Top 10 lists for day 10! I have read a few of the books on your list and absolutely loved some of them. I love how diverse the choices are, and thank you for the recommendations! 🙂

  2. I, as well, really like your lists–what a neat idea! It brought a friend of mine to my mind; he saved, ahem, underclothes as they wore out to leave them behind when he traveled.


  3. Your travel list is spot on!! As a fellow traveler, I agree with each one! 🙂 And What Alice Forgot is sooo good! Have you read any of her other books? I am getting into her stuff and really like it!
