  1. I am planning to get to The Painter in Shanghai this year since I wasn't able to last year. I definitely hope to get caught up with my review book reading this year--and then be better about not letting them pile up. :-)

  2. Wendy - It was a good read. I hope you enjoy it when you get to it. Good luck staying on top of your review books this year. :)
