Hi Bobbi! I've been thinking about you recently as I haven't seen in the blogosphere lately. I wanted to let you know that I broke down and started reading the Twilight series and love it! Do you have any good reading recommends for my 8 year old daughter. She loves to read and is reading alot of Nancy Drew right now.But she needs other things as well. I'd love to hear what you have to say. Hope all is well!

Hi Bobbi. Enjoy the variety of books on your site. The Civil War book sounds like one I might need to check out if I decide to set my next book in that time period. But it's neat that you review young adult books too. That's sure to be a big help to moms and grandmoms wanting to buy books for the youngsters in their lives.
