Again, I love the frame and picture for your mailbox. Looks lovely and is a different take on something overdone.

Before I fall and Dream Life are the two books I'd love to take off your hands the most.

Check out what was in my mailbox this week :)

I would love to see what you have to say :)

“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 escape, and the opposite of escape; it's a way to make contact with reality after a day of making things up, and it's a way of making contact with someone else's imagination after a day that's all too real. Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.”
