oh dear girl.I don't read at all.I never got into it.Sorry.I have been wanting to tell you though.I have the nativity scene I won from you out and one that just happened to be in the house.My hubby was very late bringing in the Christmas decoration.but...when he finally did.As usual,ha,he only brought in part of them.Apparently he got bitten by a spider.His rt pointer finger is all swollen,he has spent all wk going to drs and x-rays and an mri.Finally no conclusion except to wait until Mon to see if the swelling goes down.It already has and he says it hurts alot less.So maybe we're out of the woods.So I guess this is all the decorations i'll have this yr.My daughter wanted to come over and help.But she lives 2 hrs away from here.I have a lung disease so I can't carry anything.I wanted so badly to show you my sets.baaaaaaaaaa.But theres always next yr.I learned one thing for sure.If I ever get my decorations back in this house.They will not go out again.haha.
I am flattered you chose me.But,I haven't erad 5 or 6 books in my life.I am so sorry...Ann

I have a few friends who love CS Lewis. I just finished, The Horse and His Boy, to my youngest, Lizzy, last night. We really enjoyed the story. Thanks for doing this, it has really been fun to see which authors you like.
