Wow, I need to go shopping and get reading!! Since I'm on the subject of books, I want to sing the praises of some great books I've read recently as well.
I LOVED these books. Although they are all very different from each other, each one touched my heart in some way, and they are books I know I will remember. Definitely a sign of a great book for me.
