  1. Happy Thirteen. I love to read too ;) I can't say I have read any of those books though... might have to check some out. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. I only know #9. I live very near to Amsterdam and Ajax has always been a favourite!
    Thanks for visiting my TT about support. I'm glad my list helped you!

  3. I haven't read any of them, but I've seen The Natural about a zillion times. I love that movie. I don't care that Robert Redford was way too old for the part at the time he filmed it.
