I didn't even know the novella was on here until a few days ago -- because it's not under the right "Amanda Carlson." I emailed them to have it fixed :) But saw you marked it! So great. Looking forward to chatting with you!

Mine would be higher if I would get more books on here! But I swear I can't remember which # book goes with which story to give it the right review! I must be getting old.


Kathy (Kindle-aholic) I saw you mentioned the "compare" option on the friends page, so I checked it out. Go figure, everyone is somewhere between 70-90% in terms of similar book tastes. :) Pretty fun.
