  1. Great list!! FUn to see what you've read!

    The name of the restaurant in DC is in Georgetown and called Cafe La Ruche. Hope she enjoys it!

  2. You know, I'm going to go through YOUR list and make my own to-read list, too. Great choices!

  3. Ah, I LOVE books! We read a few of the same ones...Lois Lowry, Austenland, Curious Incident, and OF COURSE HP7...

  4. I think your granddaughter would like Firegirl. It's more like a 5-6th grade level as far as the writing goes, but the subject matter is probably more appropriate for someone a little more mature like your granddaughter (a few of the descriptions of the burned girl are a little scary, although not meant for shock value - just the way things are).
