SusannaG - Confessions of a Crazy Cat Lady

Just another GR refugee.  Other than that, I had a stroke in 2004, and read almost anything I can get my hands on, though I have a particular weakness for history, mystery, and historical fiction.

August Book a Day #8: Guaranteed to Cheer Me Up

The Eyre Affair - Jasper Fforde Lost in a Good Book - Jasper Fforde Something Rotten - Jasper Fforde First Among Sequels - Jasper Fforde One of Our Thursdays Is Missing (Thursday Next #6) - Jasper Fforde The Well of Lost Plots - Jasper Fforde The Woman Who Died a Lot - Jasper Fforde

Jasper Fforde's tales of Thursday Next, literary detective.  They never fail to crack me up.


Snort-worthy puns.  Fun alternate history.  Phone calls by footnote.  Thursday's pet dodo, Pickwick. Thursday's renegade time-traveler father, and mad scientist uncle.  It's all a massive barrel of fun.
