We haven't done this in a while, but thought it might be interesting to see how long some of us have been wishing for a particular book.

I've been wishing for FOREVER MY LOVE - Lisa Kleypas - since July 4, 2008.

I went to a huge, huge book sale today. Probably a million books there. It was well-organized -- books were arranged by genre, then alphabetical order of author's last name. I could not find a single book mentioned in this thread! I looked and looked...  Oh well, maybe better luck next year!
