Bookish Advice

For Magpie, who challenged us (ages ago) to make fun little stacks with our books, playing with the titles. (Alejna reminded me)

In case you can't read them...
Christopher Durang Explains it All for You
How to Clean Practically Anything
1001 Ways to be Romantic
Raising Self Reliant Children
The Animal in You
Friends are Forever
Fantastical Beasts and Where to Find Them
Character Above All

(is there anything else anyone needs to know?)

Dear Santa,

All I want for Christmas is for all my bloggy friends to participate in this Monday's Mission, which is to write a post in the form of a letter to Santa. So slide down their chimneys and help them type up some clever "Dear Santa" posts, would you? Please?

I've got one of these pics sitting in my iphoto just waiting to be uploaded. Perhaps I should do it finally? :)

Good grief!

You'd never guess by the state of my house, but I have that book about how to clean practically anything. I know, it's about stains. But...couldn't resist.

Your Monday Mission sounds fun. If I've recovered from this flu bug, I'll think about doing it. Can't wait to read yours in any case.

That tells quite a story! You are a funny woman. (I did notice that your typed list left off "The Animal in You," which is a shame to leave off, though.)

I'll hopefully manage to swing the MM this time. I've been overloaded of late, but I'm hoping to have more time...

(And I too have "How to Clean Practically Anything" - but I clean practically nothing...)

Re: your comment at my place - we always rearranged them as LEON, too! Oh, the hilarity!
