#REVIEWS coming up this week:
"The Summertime Girls" by Laura Hankin HERE!
I Am China by Xiaolu Guo - REVIEW NEEDED! CLICK HERE! It's YOUR BOOK TO WIN IF YOU WRITE THE REVIEW!
I cannot review this book because I am too out of touch with what is going on today. Hey, at least I admit it!! The music scene, politics, the very young generation coming up, and it all has me done in! I never thought I would be too old to not be able to read and review a book, but I am admitting that with this one. This is quite a heavy read, so I really look up to the person who ends up winning this one! (Review required if you win this one, please.)

The PRINT VERSIONS OF BOOKS ARE BECOMING CHEAPER TO PURCHASE THAN A COMPUTER FILE! If you ask me, the publishers are pretty angry about ebooks, for some reason??? I say this because
