Wow, I can't believe you read 11 books in one month, that's amazing!
Just disovered your blog, it's great! And yeah, I'd read all day too if I could! :D

I love your new background and avatar! I just wonder? Why do you now appear as a "blank" among my followers? I'd be nice to see your cute reading lady, instead! Happy Easter Sunday!

You had a good month. I hope April is as good if not better. Looks like you have already quite a great list going on. Enjoy.

Maria--I have just posted a question in my Sunday Salon about my avatar showing up as a question mark/blank. I am not sure what to do about it. Unfollow then refollow?

Jan--I am excited about my April list as well!
