Barbara Carpenter's trilogy arrived yesterday!
It will be a while until I can actually read them since I have Pillars and World to read first--both around 1,000 pages--but these are near the top of my TBR (to be read) stack. I know I'll enjoy them because I'm re-reading the first one, Starlight. :) :)
Thanks for mailing them so quickly, Barbara! You have gorgeous handwriting, BTW!!
I hope it is not bad luck to mention this but Barbara asked if she could enter Baby Girl in a poetry contest for me. I wasn't sure what to do, but Dagan and Leah thought I should say yes. So regardless of what happens, I thank you from the bottom of my heart, Barbara. I don't think anybody could receive a better vote of confidence. I am still amazed by your generosity. I sure hope I can at least place--be worthy of your good graces. :):)
Silly--but it makes me nervous to talk about it. Like I might jinx it or I sound pompous, you know? So that's all I'll say about it. Thanks so much, Barbara!
The day turned dark quickly yesterday--rained off and on. Still dark and rainy. Good sleeping weather , tho! I'm crawling along in Pillars--reading in my timed sessions--hehe! Good day for reading, too. Later....:):)
