About meI live in the Adirondacks in New York State with my husband and two sons age 15 and 11. I like to call them my "MENLY MEN" and one hyper female Jack Russell terrier. I insisted on another girl in the family.

About my libraryI will read anything. I am trying to read all Newbery winner and honor books. I love my local library and can be found there a few times a week. It is very tiny but I can order books online from other libraries and pick up there. I wish I would have cataloged my books sooner.

Thank you for the wonderful Secret Santa books! They arrived late on Christmas Eve. You have put so much thought into them, I'm certain I'll love them. Hope you had a great Christmas.
Thinking of you and stopping by to say hi. How are you feeling?
Please keep me posted re. results of your pain management appointment. I agree with you regarding Gary Schmidt's works. It is hard to decide which work is best. He just keeps getting better and better.
I'm stopping in to see how you are feeling. How is your back pain?

I'm thinking of you and I'm so sorry for your pain. I imagine a seven hour trip might be brutal.

Pain management does help. The coretisone injections, while painful, do indeed bring relief.

I hope despite the pain that you can enjoy your trip.


Be sure to work with your primary care doctor to find a very good pain management specialist. The doctor I see is wonderful.

For me, the injections help. They are not easy, but worthwhile.



Eight-nine years ago I had a series of three injections. They lasted that long and I was pain free for all this time.

I am going to the same pain management doctor as 8-9 years ago and he vows to help again. I think it will work. I personally recommend the injections.

I'm sorry you are feeling best.
Simply checking in to see how you are.

All the best,
You are welcome!
I'll send the ABC bunny to you if you would like it.
I have three more Newbery books to offer you. Please let me know if you are interested in any or all of them and I'll send them out to you on Monday with Roll of Thunder.

Belle Prater's Boy by Ruth White -- I loved this one and highly recommend it
The Cricket in Times Square -- cute and worth the read
Dr. Mr. Henshaw -- ok, not my favorite.

I know you enjoy the Newbery books. I'm in the process of getting order in my book shelves I have an extra coy of [Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry] by Mildred Taylor. If you would like this book, please send your address to my home page and I'll get it out to you.

Happy Sunday!

Finished The Giver today! Wow. What a great book - thank you for sending it my way!!
I'm simply stopping by to say how much I appreciate your participation in the 75 challenge group!
When I saw The Giver, I wondered if that was the book that you were surprised I hadn't read before. =)

I received the The Tower The Zoo & The Tortoise yesterday too!! I kept looking at that book when it first came out, but something kept telling me to wait on getting it. Thank you so much for some great choices!!!
I received The Giver on Monday this week. Thank you!! I've never read this before, so am excited to be able to add it to my library. =)
