Dear Sandra...
Thanks for the lovely messages on my blog. It is nice to know that I am missed. How are you???
I often think about writing on my blog again but the words just don't seem to flow the way that I would like. I continue to read but I don't think that I have anything original to say. LOL
I don't know if you ever do the 'facebook' thing but if you do...please look me up and add me...I would love to keep in touch.
Hugs,
Tamara

Sandra, it's nice to meet you and thanks for visiting and for your suggestion about collecting my reviews. I needed to learn how to make pages, anyway. :-)

You have a lot of good reading ahead of you with this list! Enjoy the challenge and the satisfaction.

Sandra! You've decide to follow my blog, and I hope you're not disappointed.

I've boosted two books (on my blog), Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford, and Forgotten Bookmarks by Michael Popek. My thing is really making art that has a story, and I'm going to browse here a bit to see what you have to offer.

Welcome to the (small) crowd!
