  1. I read and reviewed Jezebel fairly recently and The Name of the Rose back in the year dot. You have lots of interesting books on your lists so I’m looking forward to reading about them.

  2. I just added Jigsaw to my TBR. I’ve read Name of the Rose decades ago. I read Travelers in the Third Reich (and reviewed it) this year. I’ve put Mary Poppins on and off my TBR–I almost enjoy the books too much to read about her! I’ll look forward to your review on that one, especially.
