Man, it's like a confessional, isn't it?

I've read Divisadero and Gilead, and want to read A Thousand Splendid Suns.

I have a big stack going too, nevermind the stuff I bought in October.

It really, really is. :^) What did you think of Divisadero and Gilead? Should they be high or low on my list? :^)
