Lots to read and do. I'm going to finish up A Trick of the Light and delve into The Library Book (I love that spoilers are permitted. Spoilers don't mess me up at all. They make me want to figure out what the person is talking about). And TRY and let me say TRY again to catch up on some of books on my TBR shelve.

Thanks for the newsletter.

You're a better woman than I, I hate spoilers. I'll have to try looking at it from your perspective.

Your welcome, my pleasure.

I agree with Sheri. Spoilers allow me to become more involved with the plot of a book. Also, it helps me to encourage discussion on a book.
