  1. I can’t wait to hear what you think of Reading People and Nothing. I am on the hold list for The Four Tendencies, so I hope I get that one soon too. Sadly, I am still not finding time for blogging, so I don’t think I’ll have a post this month. Ugh. Life needs to get less crazy soon! I am so stressed. 🙁

  2. I’ve been thinking about using one of my audible credits to get Of Mess and Moxie. Sounds like I should definitely consider it! Our daughter read the Sternberg series a few years ago and loved them. Midnight at the Bright Idea Bookstore sounds intriguing also! Thanks for the link up!
