What a great idea! If I can get this book I will certainly be part of this discussion group, if not will look forward to the next one. I am engrossed right now in Wally Lamb's new book and have another 350 pages to read. Good luck with this new program, I feel sure it will be a success.

Hi Jessica! In another

Hi Jessica! In another <a href="">Reader's Den</a> post we discussed Margaret's character. And I think we agree with you that Margaret didn't really do much for us.
