Clearly, I have some catching up to do.

Have you read other Geraldine Brooks? I loved POTB this year and Year of Wonders last year and March before that. I might even try her nonfiction.

I'm definitely hooked. I've only read PotB and March, but I'm looking forward to YoW and her non-fiction Foreign Correspondence, since I used to be a bored kid with a lot of penpals, too.

Cool list! I haven't read anything on it, but my interest is piqued. Thanks for posting this over at BBD!
