So I'm not the only one who self-medicates with books? Good to know. I also see a lot of titles and writers in your comments that I'll have to check out next time I'm at the bookstore.
We dusted off the magic hat (who has been sulking over being left in the closet so long), and the winners of the Rob Thurman giveaway are:
SandyH, who escapes with the Darkyn series and Jayne Anne Krentz.
Sari from Michigan, who depends on Mercedes Lackey and Anne McCaffrey's earlier novels.
Emily of Tom, Emily & Brenna, who mentioned Cherijo from StarDoc and Sylvia Thorpe as particularly helpful
AthenaW, who recommends anything by Lilith Saintcrow as a tough times go-to read.
Winners, when you have a chance please send your full name and ship-to address to LynnViehl@aol.com so I can send your books and surprises out to you. My thanks to everyone for joining in.
