I just got *The Name of the Rose* from the library. Now I suppose I should put it back and wait for April. I also just read *Holes* a few weeks ago. Looks like some Bookfest mind meld going on. Anyway, looks like a good year!

What a great list! Very diverse. I haven't even heard of half the titles, which is great, because I'm always looking to expand my horizon.
