  1. I can see why you managed to find spaces for these… although you list so many books here, I can’t believe there’s a part two!! Under My Hat: Tales from the Cauldron looks spooky. I would like to hear how you like it after you read it. I have gotten a really random collection of books recently, including The Dead Gentleman by Matthew Cody and Latin for Gardeners by Lorraine Harrison.


  2. Wow, lots of good titles here. I don’t know Tales from the Cauldron-looks good!
