Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. It means so much.

I apologize for word verification, but as soon as I changed the settings from only users with Google accounts, I started receiving a ton of spam comments...within one hour of changing the settings. The bots are on high alert apparently.

  1. What a haul! I won a copy of Julie and Julia from a blog, but the book never got sent :(
    Enjoy the reading

  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".

  3. I love Alice in Wonderland! Enjoy all your books :)

  4. You were on a roll with the books!
