Since this seems to be the forum I hang out in the most I thought I would also post this here.  A lot more books to add to my wishlist - just what I need!  Hope you find some new ones too.

I know that these opinion polls are just that opinions.  But in truth, I was a little put out that SKP only got just over 300 votes and Philippa (let me diddle with history) Gregory got like 600 +.  The categories are just too broad.  I was completely put out about the romance novels.  Paranormal ruled and I am not knocking the genre, but again I just felt the categories where just to broad some really good books just got lost in the shuffel.  There were very few historical mysteries on the mystery lists.  So I ended up being rather disappointed in the poll.
