book fair booty jealousy!

I love it when writers also read a lot and that sounds like some highly interesting reading indeed. Happy reading!

I'm particularly curious about the Chelsie Minnis book.

I mailed your girl gang chap yesterday, by the way.

Damn! I didn't know you got the Nadelberg. It's a good thing I didn't know, really, or I'd be more in debt ;)
