Hi Julie:

We've read several of the same books (though you're a much more diligent reviewer!)of many different genres: FIVE PEOPLE, STILL ALICE, THE JUNGLE, GUERNSEY and LOVE WALKED IN.

I bet you would also like the recent Jane Austen inspired debut release from Marilyn Brant, ACCORDING TO JANE!

On a side note, I'd love to talk to you about advance review copies of some titles I work on at Penguin. If you're interested, please email me at
