        Hi. I love reading Kindle books. I tend to read those while sitting in waiting rooms, at bus shelters, and while riding long routes.

        I intend to pick it up next weekend. I get an EBook each month with my Amazon Prime, and this month that one will be it.

        I’m going to be picking up yours and Jo’s this month and what awesome reading it is sure to be.

        Well, Hi!
        I wish I had a WOW button here.
        Nice to hear from you, and you’re very welcome for the reblog.
        Also, thanks to you for reading things on my blog. That’s so cool that you let me know. So many times I’ve no idea who’s reading through and who’s just liking and going on for the sake of doing so.
        I see it shows your website here and I shall have a look. I’m slammed tight with a Facebook event this week but I shall get to it soon.
        Would love to have you at our event, details are here on the blog, or you may visit:
        We’d love having you.

    Hi Patty,
    Just got around to reading your response to my note re re-blogging. Thanks for the invite to your big event but I live on Vancouver Island, a few thousand miles away. And I’m still somewhat handicapped from my stroke. Still, maybe one day I’ll make it to Tennessee. My website is a little out of date but I’ll catch up when my new book is published this October. I hope you are doing well.
