    That is so exciting. Your recommendations are always awesome, Michelle. I can’t wait to find a job, so I can start ordering again. Damn recession! But I have added these collections to my list. Maybe I can get my local library to order for me, so I won’t have to wait. They’re usually very good about order requests.

    P.S. – Your header is beautiful. Big applause to the artist.
