    Looks like you have some wonderful books to read this week. Hope you are having fun with the readathon, I think it actually is stressing me out a bit!


  9. Some how I am missing blog posts. *sigh*
    Maybe because I am m.i.a!
    But, I am so glad that you got the book, and I am the same way. I was going to give it to my niece, but I think I will keep it and we can do it together!! LOL
