  1. What about Edward and Matilda (in the book by the same name by Laurence Fernely). A sweet read.

  2. Thanks Tania - I'll add it to my reading shelves!
    For an English lit major, I'm remarkably unread... must be all that popular fiction I read... (ie trash)!


Thanks for visiting and sharing... please share your name, too...
I'm going to check the comments first - and it might take me a while to remember to look - sorry!
