"Mitbringsel"


Vom 12. bis 19. März 1998 war ich in Texas. Dort hab ich meine E-mail Freundin Pam besucht. Und bin natürlich einem Bücherkaufrausch verfallen ... grins .... Die Buchläden dort waren für mich wie Weihnachten und Ostern auf einem Tag ... grins .... Und da ich weiß, daß es auch hier in Deutschland und anderswo sehr viele Leserinnen gibt, die nicht vor englischen Originalausgaben zurückschrecken, hab ich Euch hier die Covertexte meiner "Mitbringsel" aufgelistet.

Die Informationen stammen von den Buchcovern!
