BTW ... for those of you who love to read, but have little money to spend, you might want to check out: Join the Club and Swap Books for Free! - PaperBackSwap.com
This is where I get all my books!
Because of my own childhood I REALLY can't do books with storylines about parent issues. Now I don't mind a good murder mystery!
I'm also on Paperback Swap!!
