I don't know how you do it, Misfit! You're my hero, lol! Although I have read a few non fiction books that have nothing to do with historical fiction. Maybe I'll add them to my list to make it look a bit beefier :D . I've been reading a lot of dog training books since it's been forever since I've raised a puppy and also to help my older dog with her aggression issues. They count, right?

Yes, every book counts :D

It's not too hard to get books read, especially now. The knee is heeling but weekend trips traipsing aroudn the woods or downtown Portland are just not a viable option. Outside of getting to the gym and the grocery store there's not much else to do is there?

Yes, it's quite a spree and I'm not quite done yet - but I'm saving Rebecca for last. One of my Amazon friends has been working her way through Du Maurier's books as well and we're having a good time comparing notes on our reviews.

Hi Misfit.....Such a prolific reader.....Re: Lady Daphne...."House on the Strand" is one of my favorites....Have you had the chance to watch the BBC's 2007 biopic called "Daphne"...really well done and quite interesting.....about her life as she describes herself a "Boy in a Box"....good looking production and well cast.....Tastefully done....
