      I'm an Orson Scott Card nut, as are most of my coworkers. That man could write about the gum stuck to the bottom of his shoe and make it entertaining. And probably heartwrenching. Poor gum.

      Can't forgive myself I've never heard about him! Probably he wasn't translated in Bulgaria though that's doubtful. I need to correct this huge reading lapse of mine!

      I had no idea I'd missed quite so many of his books. They were hard to find when I was reading them so I think I'll go back to the beginning and start again. Thank you for the list!
