Daniel Folks, after reading Paula's reviews, I learned something: Neither Paula nor I will let you borrow any of our favorite books anymore.

I wish you the best of literary experiences, Paula.

btw I've added your books Upon arrival and How birds Work to my to-read list.


Andrew hiya!


Simone Hi Paula--
Thanks for the lovely note! I just ordered your book and look forward to reading it! If you ever read in Chicago, be sure to let me know.

Simone
