I don't get the "waiting their turn on the shelf" ones. Have you bought them already or you are wanting to buy them?

Good Job reading, Miles!

Dear Elizabeth,

I don't actually know you, but I've been reading you blog, and I like it. I don't even remember how exactly I found it in the first place. But I live in Ukraine and your story sounds very familiar to how I got here. I feel like we could be friends. And about your book list, I just finished "If You Want To Walk On Water" and it was AMAZING. Every chapter I read, I wanted to reread and thought about trying to memorize the thing. :) From what I've read on your blog, I have a feeling you will love it.
