  1. This really brings home to me how much last year’s kerpupple has changed my reading habits. Without it, by now I would perhaps have read Luna and Mother of Eden, which are the only ones I’ve seen in my local library, and maybe have some others waiting on the Kindle if Amazon had done a very good offer on them. With it: I read “The Witches of Lychford” before Christmas, Glorious Angels last month, started The House of Shattered Wings yesterday; the other three novels are near the top of my virtual TBR pile, and Letters to Tiptree is about to be moved up as well.
