I think I could read all of your solo books. I havent' made a list yet...maybe I'll add a few of these!

Oh, I came across Stepping Heavenward by Elizabeth Prentiss at my church bookstore today and picked it up for $4.50. So I'm going to push all else aside and read that. (The majority of the titles from my post will be obtained from my fabulous public library. That list would probably run around $200 if purchased. That's not my style!)
