    Lord of the Flies is all I got. But Katherine Weber should be ashamed of herself, talking that way about Marmee.

      I had the same reaction when I typed that question about Marmee. That’s so not her character! How can that even be conceivable as fan fic?

    All I know is _Lord of the Flies_. I don’t suppose the Little Women one is _March_, is it?

    Classics: Lord of the Flies

    Book Club: I agree, not cool to talk about Marmee like that!

    Children’s: With 54 mysteries, I can’t imagine it’s anyone but Nancy Drew. But stinky cheese? Oh, Nancy, how the mighty have fallen.

    Classics: Lord of the Flies

    Non-Fiction: No clue.

    Book Club: Wasn’t it the same? Little Women?

    Authors: Don’t know. I’ve never read Grimes. Should I?

    Book Bag: Oh it’s one of those things our babysitter used to read with flowery covers. Someone like Maeve Binchy or Nora Roberts.

      It is Nora Roberts. If you ask me, she is the best romance writer alive today.

    I agree with Harriet about no. 1. I don’t see who else it can be.

    And I agree with everyone else about Marmee — no way.

      I guess this card isn’t going to cause any of us to rush out and read Katharine Weber!
