    I still have a lot of the books from when I was a little girl and I like to re-read them. Has anyone else read the childhood series Mrs. Piggle Wiggle?

    I have tons of books and that's what a lot of people tend to give me as gifts. I couldn't name all the authors I have because I mostly read something depending on if the topic appeals instead of who the author is, however . . .

    Sue Grafton is brilliant - forgot to put her on my list. I have a problem parting with my books - always think I will reread them - and I do some of them. What does anybody else do with their read books ?

    I love Sue Grafton as well and have all her Kinsey books as well. I wonder when she'll be coming out with T. It's been a while since she came out with a book and nothing on there is nothing on her website that lets on about an upcoming release.

    **Edited to add that I saw on the Sue Grafton forum that T is for Trespass will be coming out in December 2007**

    I keep them. The ones I love, I re-read over and over again. I'd love to have floor to ceiling bookshelves with one of those ladders that you can move on tracks.

    I would love to have those kind of bookshelves as well Laurent

    Regarding my books, I'm the same as Laurent. I keep the ones I love and I re-read them. It drives my boyfriend crazy because there are books everywhere in this place lol. I have three bookshelves that are packed double and I have some in closets, in the shelves over my computer desk, on my nightstand. The ones I don't like I put in a box to bring to the Used bookstore. Actually I have more than 100 in a box right now that I should go bring.

    I know that I should give some to the charity shop but its soooo hard parting with most of them - apart from a few doozies which were a mistake. I want to keep them all but am running out of room !!! Built in book shelves would be wonderful, especially with a wee ladder on wheels to get around them

    I love Hollywood Wives!!! When I was reading it, I always pictured Elaine Conti as Goldie Hawn.
