You're welcome! Happy reading!
Thank you for the Santa books! I can't wait to dive into them. I know they both have had very good reviews. Thanks for picking them out for me!!
Hi, Debbie -- Thanks so much for your comments. They are very helpful to me. I can see you know where I'm coming from on this! I love to cook, so I will definitely check out some of the resources you suggest. The community on LT is so great. Best, Shannon
yay, I'm so happy you're happy! I was a little worried about that sequel and that maybe you already had it in your stocking. Enjoy!
Hi Debbie,
Thanks so much for the books you selected for SantaThing. I'm sincerely looking forward to reading them. I've added your library as an interesting library. Congrats on finishing grad school, and have a wonderful 2013.
Hi Debbie - It was a blast picking out the Santa books for you. I hope you enjoy them! Happy New Year!

Just wanted to drop a note to say thanks for the SantaThing picks. The books are terrific choices, and I'm looking forward to reading both of them right away. Thank you very much, and have a wonderful New Year.
Thank you so very much for the wonderful books! I've been checking out The Book Thief and A Wrinkle in Time looks great!!
Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!!


Hello! I am so glad you got them (i haven't gotten mine yet either, was starting to worry me) I also really really really wanted to send you 84, Charing Cross Road & The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society. I think you'd enjoy them a lot from what I could see of your library. Do check them out if you ever have a chance!
If you ever go on Deviant Art it's by Martins De Barros and is called "The Art Scholar". Here is a link to his page: and from there you can request it as a print.
I've got a thread there and several threads for the last few years in the other groups.
