The whole layout of The Book . . . Spot right now looks really funky but I'm not sure it's not just the computer I'm using (it's having some serious internet issues) but if it is looking strange for you, too (either a blue background not black or the whole header and content way over to the right--enough that you have to scroll over--and not centered), let me know?

Anyway, I was supposed to be posting reviews today, but as often happens, I got distracted...I spent the afternoon chewing way too much Fruit Sorbet Orbit gum, making sure my dogs didn't knock each other around too much....and entering contests.

I thought you might want to do the same (well the latter at least...the gum thing for one made me feel kind of sick, though I'm sure it was just the quantity--and my dogs aren't on loan) so here are some links:

Violet in Private by Melissa Walker Giveaway at Read, Read, Read: HERE ends August 30 at 8pm

I'll try to post some actual reviews soon--I have actually been reading, so there are things to post (Tropical storms and another major thing have just taken up a lot of my time and ability to do so) :)
