  1. I only have a TDBR in my head 🙂

  2. Wahoo!! You added in Search for Maylee!! Happy reading Laura Beth, I hope you love it! 😊

  3. I took a bunch out of the library, but haven’t really made a dent in the pile.

    • Everyone reads at their own pace. I need to use the library more often!

      • I am a big supporter of the library. I suppose some branches do not get a lot of business, but the one where I live is very busy, quite modern (we have a 3D printer) and the staff is quite good.

      • That’s awesome! There is a newly-renovated, state-of-the-art library in a neighboring city here. Digital media, 3D printers, and more! My aunt Nancy works for a very sophisticated and popular library system in Illinois and loves it.

  4. Hey Laura Beth, I forget…..did I mention Mary Kubica’s book to you or is this just a coincidence that you added it to your list?
