  1. I stumbled upon your blog and I love your book ideas. I have been creating a 2016 goodreads list and many of your proposed books are on my list or ones I've wanted to read ( Moby Dick, Out of Africa, David Malouf, E.M. Forster. I love Willa Cather and Edgar Allan Poe. I think we have a lot of the same interests in books.) I plan to read several at a time. Thank you! Shelley Dorman
