  3. I haven’t read any of them but I would like to add my name… can we do that if we’ve already won?


  4. I love reading all of these books! You bless my life, and I am so grateful. I love ordering on-line now that our local GLBTQ bookstore has closed. 😦

  7. We are almost snowed in, and we’re not used to that in Belgium…not in this part of our very open minded, little country….time enough to read a good book !


  8. Lisa had an eyelash on her cheek. I held it up for her and she wished…something. I’m pretty sure it was that I won a book! 🙂



  9. I don’t think I’m ever gonna win :sigh: But I’m still loving it!! I have to say though that Rachel Spangler’s book The Long Way Home was absolutely awesome!! Thanks 🙂


  10. Good luck to everyone. I’m sure we’re coming close to the end of this day… Angela… in Southern Cali where it’s totally raining and very windy/wet. I’m just glad it’s not icy cold too. 🙂 Though it is cold but not ice cold. 😀
