  1. I hope my comment worked in your other post. Captchas are unkind to non-Blogger users; sometimes taking 1/2 hour to go through. This theme looks neat if it's blog-based, not solely at Goodreads. I would love to have you at any of mine. "Ethereal", "Gentle Spectrums", "My Kind Of Mystery". Sincerely,Carolyn.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
