How many of these have you read Kerrie? Are you planning on reading any before you go? Or are you going to get stuck into books by the panelists for the convention?

Kerrie said...

I haven't actually read any of them Bernadette. I have got a copy of FRACTURED. Have you got any of the others? I can get the Laurie King and the two Rhys Bowen titles form the libtary so I have just reserved them

Get reading, Kerrie. I know too many books, too little time. Look forward to seeing you in Hawaii!
