Cool...my aunt just gave me The Echo Maker! Now I am looking forward to it even more!

Hey, great list! I had The Echo Maker on my TT list, and a Cormac McCarthy novel -- do great minds run in the same track, or what? :)

Gonna have to check out the others you listed! Happy TT, and thank you for visiting my blog. :)

Oh, dear, and I'd only heard of Stephen King's newest release. Great list!

I just read a review for Suite Francaise yesterday. It sounds interesting, doesn't it?

This is such a great list. I'm a bibliophile too. My list last week was all about books that made an impression on me as a writer. I have several of these on my reading list for 2007 too. Thanks for sharing.

My TT #4 is up.

I've been pondering Suite Francaise and The Inheritance of Loss. Oh, and Half a Yellow Sun.

Too many books!

I haven't heard of any of these, but I will check some of them out. Hopefully you'll give us a few reviews.
