Bookie Brunch schedule

Now follow me to the third Bookie Brunch meeting for a bit of chit chat at This Miss Loves To Read.

Bookie Brunch Question of the day:
Do you think people only read classics because they are classics or because they are actually enjoyable?

Related topics to consider: Is there a classic that you don't think should be a classic? Why do you think that?

  1. Worldweavers looks really good. It's got that paranormal feeling which I love. ;) Happy reading.

  2. So many great looking books! I think I am most interested in The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities and Water's Edge. I hope you enjoy all the books.

  3. Good luck with that Captive of My Desires... I couldn't go on with it from page 15. I just couldn't. >.>'

  4. So many interesting books! I have to get The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities. It looks great! *_*
    Happy reading! :D

  5. Cool, Lindsey :D I have read a couple of books by her and liked them

  6. So many good book! The Thackery T. Lambshead Cabinet of Curiosities looks delightful.

  7. Ditto! Cabinet of Curiosities has my curiosity (well, natch!) piqued, - and love it's cover art, too ~ :D

  8. I can't wait to hear what you think of the Cabinet of Curiosities. Sounds really interesting!
