Barbara Kingsolver is one of my favorite authors, and she was born in April. Here's my review of her very inspiring memoir, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life.

I celebrated Ron Roy's birthday month with one of his A to Z Mysteries titled X'ed-Out X-Ray.

Kara said...

I celebrated Sue Grafton this month by reading "C" is for Corpse.


Yes, I am having a great time with this challenge. It's fun to know when my favorite authors' birthdays are and celebrate them by reading their books. I hope you do the same challenge next year!!
