    I read The Wedding Gift when it was out in hardback – it’s a good one! Bread and Butter came in my mailbox recently, too…it sounds like it could be interesting, I’m curious what it will end up being like.

    I have The Husband’s Secret on my review shelf – hope to read it soon. The Reading Journal looks wonderfully useful 🙂

    I adore reading journals – I scoured Australia for the Moleskine one! Have a wonderful reading week.

    Enjoy Leslie — I started listening to audio books at work as I am not very busy in summer, and have been finishing about one every 2 days which has been nice.

    Have a great week.

    Nice mailbox. I received Bread and Butter and the Journal as well. I forgot to add it to my received books.

    The Husband’s Secret is up next for me.

    ENJOY your week.
