    What a fun day for you!! I have to say some of my surprise fave books of the year have been, The Mark, Flecks of Gold, and Sheralyn, Heather, and Lisa Mangum’s series. Oh, and Jessica is a writing genius- we have loved all her books! Great pics. Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve had my eye on The Limit by Kristen Landon. I’ve been bitten by the dystopian bug lately. That would have to be the one I would be most interested in.

  3. The Itzel Library

    Oh! Itยดs very difficult!!

    Sydney Salter, Lisa Mangum, Marilyn Bunderson and Frank L.Cole are very interesting for me.

    I hope luck be with me and get one of these.
