I GOT 45

I ahem borrowed this from my friend Val's facebook site. I love books. I love reading them, talking about them, writing them, holding them, thinking about them. A good book is a friend.

How did you do?

ps...Since my Mom passed away one of the great comforts I have had as I am trying to heal is reading. I just bought six books a couple of hours ago from the used book store. Yahoooooooo.

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.
