  1. These are wonderful! There are so many good books. I wish I had been together enough to participate in this one..!

  2. These are all so creative - and they run the range from comic to ethereal. Alyssa's pigeon made me laugh out loud - he is so cool!

  3. Love the diversity of favorites - how can we reader's pick just one? Love all the creativity and seeing what books others love best ;-}

  4. There is another Cynthia Y? Interesting! Because the above Cynthia Y cards are not from me.

    1. whoops - I was alphabetically challenged this morning! the cards are from Cynthia J, and I've now updated it. Good catch!

  5. I love Ellen's quote from Roald Dahl.
