  1. Hey, I picked up the “Eighty Days/ Nellie Bly and Elizabeth Bisland” book a few months ago at a book sale. I’d forgotten about it until I saw your post. You’ve inspired me to move it to the top of my TBR list.

    Your list is fascinating, as always. I don’t think anyone could ever accuse you of being stuck in a reading “rut”! 😉
