message 14: by Danielle (new)

Danielle Graham I do not know why, but after reading this book, All We Ever Wanted, I always want to clean the house.A rather strange desire ... for the first time I noticed such a desire when I read it for the first time and then found that I was picking up a vacuum cleaner when see this site, I found there a vacuum cleaner that is ideal for cleaning bookshelves.And I have a lot of them because I can not imagine my life without books.
