Sorry but I am getting so sick of series and having to wait a year or more to find out what happens ... can you print a list of good stand alone books that you would recommend? Some of the cliffhangers I have been reading are so infuriating! It would be a real service to those of us who like to read stand alone books.

@Bridge Girl: That's a good idea for a future post--we'll work on it! Thanks.

I love seeing all these books and titles in one long list!! It's like getting the Entertainment Weekly with the TV premieres. Wish I could use my trusty highlighter on my screen to pick and choose when I will download! Am pouring over it. Thx, H&H!
