    Fun post this week, and I enjoyed all the links under Worth Reading, in various ways. Food for thought.
    I couldn’t find any more info about the Scottish “Oceans 8” book but it sounds like fun to me.
    Have a good week with your choir and your books!

      The tweet was from the author’s literary agency, congratulating her on a three-book deal with Avon. So it’s not written (or not completed) yet—something to look forward to! I hope you have a good week too, Rita.
