I apologize for word verification, but I turned it off and had close to 50 spam comments within 12 hours (nobody has time for that) so I had to turn it back on. Sorry!

  2. Oh darn, Deb! I had that happen to me with a couple early review books from Library Thing. I was supposed to get one last fall...never rec'd it!

    I know...I got some good ones! I'm seriously addicted! Is there a book rehab? Tried to make me go to rehab and I said, "no, no, no".
