  3. Looks like you're off to a good start for your challenges!

  4. I need to check out Falling Snow too.

  5. I am always amazed by how much you read! And a little envious ;) I didn't read your review of the Forman because I hope to read it soon, but I'm glad to see your rating here.

  6. You accomplished much more reading than I last month! I'll be curious to read your review of The Minor Adjustment Beauty Salon.

  7. So glad you loved In Falling Snow as much as I thought you would :)
