  28. I follow you on Network Blogs! (And here’s a side story about that–I registered my regular blog and my book blog while signing up to follow yours. Then when I was on FB, I thought I’d respond to a few things, which led me to add all my family members to my profile. Then I decided I needed to update my profile. Oh, and I added the badges to my blogs to “verify” myself as owner, so then I posted a book review on the one blog. Isn’t that hilarious? That’s why there is so much time between my first post and this post.)
