Nice to hear from you, Ellen! Colin Thubron's To a Mountain in Tibet is one of the better reads if you like nonfiction.

Hi Eric, delighted and intrigued to see my novel on the list. Was wondering how you come to hear about the novels and which ones you've read - have you read mine, for example? And what do the different colours mean? Always great to see my book mentioned anywhere (hopefully a thrill which will never fade). Let me know if I can tell you any more about it, and please check out my own website at www.edsiegle.com
