  13. The Snuggi is pretty awesome for this time of year, but I love my Kindle and wouldn't trade it for anything...even a Snuggi.
    I have seen some awesome reviews for Pushing the Limits and have to make the time for it. Enjoy your books, Snuggi and Kindle.

  14. Love the snuggie, Margie! lol That Kindle is awesome too, I've never seen the HD one...sooo pretty. I'm a week late commenting, BUT I still think it's so funny we both got Fateful! I got Beautiful Creatures for Christmas, so maybe we'll end up reading one of them at the same time. I looove Pushing the Limits, I won the UK version right after it came out and it's one of my favourite books of 2012. Great haul! :-)
