Total tallies will begin next week. The top commenters at the end of the year will win a bookish prize. (It might be helpful to distinguish your Disqus name to make sure I don't count yours separately or with someone else.)

Note: I apologize for comments being kind of wonky this week.  I removed Disqus, which made all previous comments on Disqus look like they were made by me for whatever reason.  I missed seeing who wrote one comment on a post and lost at least one but I appreciated it fully! Commenting should now all work properly.

  1. Thanks for the link, Becca! :) It wasn't me, just one of my authors. But I do love Asia, and I will be checking most of these books out. They sound absolutely wonderful!
