Oh, Debi! I'm reading Rebecca right now and it's incredible! You're going to love it. I just ordered Dandelion Wine too...so if I can squeeze in one more book somewhere next year, I'll read that one as a bonus :p

You should let me know when you plan on reading Rebecca, since it's on my challenge list too (although I know I won't be able to get around to it until at least Feb. or March).

We also seem to have Orhan Pamuk in common. I've heard Snow is really good!
