  1. Some really good fiction here!

  2. The Last Bookshop in London sounds really good to me. I love books about books and reading and people who love them. I agree about books that take the names of God and Jesus in vain.

    1. I think you’ll really like this book.

  3. Hi, Paula. Unfortunately, I do not get to read as much as I would like too. Right now, the time I do have for reading, is saved for my Bible studying goal for this year.
    Take care and best wishes.
