tia Hello. :)
I read your review of "A Book of Memories" and I just wanted to say that it made me laugh out loud (in a good way, of course). I look forward to reading more of your reviews in the future!

Kris Thank you so much for the friend request, Sam! I'm delighted to accept it! I see many tantalizing books on your shelves, plus you're a fellow Philadelphian! I'm looking forward to great discussions with you.
