The rules:
World wide competition
Send an email with your name before next Sunday (July 4th) to do.hu.ja (at) mail.tele.dk

Tie breaker: write the name of one writer I like. (Don´t worry, I like 95 % of the books I review)

Wow. I can't believe you're done with this already. And you read some great books. I love the Hamish Macbeth books -- they are soooo cozy, but Hamish is fun.

I love Marsh's books too.

Dorte H sagde ...

Beth: I think I will buy more Hamish Macbeth stories later, but I still have 3-4 cosies on my TBR for the summer holidays.

Thank you, Kris.

And I know what it is like. This year I am also hosting a challenge, and it is impossible for me to keep track of everything that goes on.
