    OK KAte, I am going to use this list–though not INTUITION since it will be coming in the bookclub year. I will keep you posted on my opinions (including if I think you are insane). THanks for the ideas, super big thanks.

    Hi Katherine–

    I was just cruising for reviews on this beautiful Sunday afternoon and came across your inclusion in your list of URSULA, UNDER. Thanks for the compliment. It made my day to be included on a list with Garcia Marquez (among others): it made up for having found myself earlier today on a favorites list with (shudder, egad) Dan Brown.
