  1. Get ready for a long reply: Of the books you listed, I have read Grapes of Wrath/(studied it in high school)/The Magnificent Ambersons (Booth Tarkington is one of my favorites from eighth grade on)/ Robinson Crusoe/Practical Magic (anything by Alice Hoffman goes on my lists)/ Mrs. Pregrine’s…(bought it fro Half Price Books and got two books more into the series before giving it up)/ Jamaica Inn (love DuMurier)/ The Man Who Loved Books Too Much (best non-fiction ever)/ and both books by Stephen King (I am a BIG fan).
    Two books I would love to buddy read with you are Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil (I already have a copy) and one I would like to order anyway , Rubin’s “Outer-Inner.” Let me know if you’re interested, and we could read them at the same time.
