    1. Kathy, thanks again for clarifying WHICH book would be best. I got a very sincere ‘thank you’ from him and he is already prepping for the first few recipes to try.

    1. Debi – do you have it? Let me know and/or if you want to read together or maybe I will make all the John Cusack Challenge books my COBC choices each month. (I’m finding myself woefully inadequate at being a readalong host.)

    1. Lola, they have all been highly praised and her professional credentials are impressive. I’m hoping I can dive into this book and not be overwhelmed with stuff I don’t know the backstory, too. And it’s so very long… But my curiousity is piqued, so hopefully by November, I can dedicate myself to this VW project.

    1. Violet – I am intrigued by the dystopian theme to The Witch of Hebron and also hope that not reading the first book (this is the second in the series) that I won’t be too lost.

    1. Ronnica, Not a Dylan fan, huh? I can’t say I’m a huge fan of his music, personally but this book is part of my challenge and it does sound intriguing.

    1. Hi Lisa! The Grilling Book is GORGEOUS, too. AND he has beginner to experienced, lots of pics. My hub (the wannabe chef) is thrilled.
      And thank you for the encouragement to read AND review. 😉

    1. Amanda, I do recall you mentioning that you have this? Any time frame you think you’ll be getting to it? I might read it right after The Woman in White. Have a great Read-A-Thon!!
