Default Recommendation Please

I bought two of Anne's other books awhile back...No One Noticed the Cat and
If Wishes Were Horses....I just have not read them yet. For some reason when I just have been unable to get in the mood to read them....Any suggestions on which one I should read first?

Both are cute little novellas, which are entirely unrelated in plot and setting so that it really doesn't matter which you read first.

If you like cats more than horses then read No One Noticed the Cat but if you like horses better then read If Wishes Were Horses. It won't take long to read either one of them and you could probably get thru both in one day.

If your in a fun mood do No One Noticed first; if your in a classic fantasy reading mode, do If Wishes

How about Black Hores for A King? I have read that one it good. The other two I have not gotten to yet, I seen them around but with my sight hit and miss the paperback are harder to read with out stressing out my eyes.

Ginny, do magnifying glasses still work for you? Pain to have to hold one while reading, I know, but I have done it sometimes.

And I read and enjoyed If Wishes Were Horses. Couldn't put it down. Haven't gotten around to the other one yet.

Two things: you may be interested in a third book in that "series", An Exchange of Gifts.

Also, I normally don't make fun of typos but this is too good to overlook:

How about Black Hores for A King?
