Hi Joy, Thanks so much for visiting! I have really enjoyed browsing through your site! great to meet a reader finally. I am so baffled by people who don't read, and no one really does I know. I read 2-3 novels a week currently, not working or have returned to classes so I'm enjoying! I'll be visiting again and really need to add more of what I read to my site. Lori
