I believe it will be considered at some stage, so keep your fingers crossed. I would love it to be available in the USA and UK. Thanks so much for asking. Warmest wishes, Karen :)(less)

Henry David Thoreau
“How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.”
Henry David Thoreau

William Blake
“A truth that's told with bad intent
Beats all the lies you can invent.”
William Blake, Auguries of Innocence

Nora Ephron
“Reading is everything. Reading makes me feel like I've accomplished something, learned something, become a better person. Reading makes me smarter. Reading gives me something to talk about later on. Reading is the unbelievably healthy way my attention deficit disorder medicates itself.

Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
Nora Ephron, I Feel Bad about My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman
