  2. Hello, Jen! It’s nice to meet you way over in NZ! This was interesting reading your book poll. I tried the link but it didn’t work however. Book Sales are awesome, aren’t they? Our library has one every year or so. There’s always some great finds there!

  3. Hi Jen, Thank you so much for the card you mailed me – I really do appreciate it! The funeral is now over and it was very sad but at least we know she is better off now and resting! Thank you once again for your concern!

  5. I haven’t had time to do Dianne’s poll yet but I plan to. I’ve read several and it’s amazing – we all have a lot of the same book habits. I used to try to collect Danielle Steele too but my goodness, I don’t have enough shelves. She’s prolific, to say the least.

    It’s wonderful that you’re instilling a love for books in Daniel. Without a doubt, it’s one of the best gifts you’ll ever give him.

    I can’t imagine a world without books. When I meet someone who tells me they never read, I just don’t get it.
