            I love the baby onsies. So cute–I like “And though she be but little…” best, I think. My niece is having a baby in the next few months so I’ll have to try to get one of these bookish onesies!

            I want to listen to more audiobooks this year, too, so I enjoyed that list!

            Interesting list as usual, Lark.

            The baby onesies are adorable! I need a baby to give them to, lol.

            Lots of good links as usual, off to read more of them.
