Reading Contest!!

Okay, folks. We only have a few weeks left in our reading contest. Gather up all the titles and page numbers and keep a tally sheet to send to me. We have incredible, and I do mean, INCREDIBLE prizes.

If you have any questions or comments – post them soon, so that everyone is ready for the contest to end.

Next, I was also asked to contribute to another book that is coming out this summer – please check the books page for more details.

There’s much more to come – with pics of the Grand Canyon, …
