Will Is there an error with your page? It says you've been reading those 3 books in your 'Currently Reading' section since 2009.


Margaret Chind Thanks! I've read several of your titles and plan to continue on into Omnibus. I used it while working as a long term substitute at a Classical Christian School and now nothing else with suit!
