Reading your emails is the best part of my day. I sure do appreciate hearing from you.
"Suzanne, I bought my own bubble machine several years ago because of your column. Everyone loves it and one of my neighbors asked permission for her son to come use it, when I am not home. It really is so much fun and it does bring our neighborhood together! Thanks for the idea!"--Maureen
"Hi Suzanne, I am new to the book club and I have to say I look forward to your email every day when I come in to work. Thank you for giving us insight into your days. I feel like I know you personally. Regarding the bubbles, when I fill the sink to wash dishes and squirt in the dish washing liquid...I give (the bottle) a quick squeeze afterwards, and bubbles start floating everywhere. I've done this since my kids were very young (they're now teenagers), and they still expect it. They go chasing after the bubbles in the kitchen. Even the dogs get in on the act. It's amazing how something so simple can make people, and animals so happy. Thanks for brightening my day."--Anna F.
"I so enjoy reading your column every day, and the contests you have besides the featured book are fun. Thanks for the book, I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but...I look forward to it. By the way, I would never read some of these books if I didn't read your features first. It is good to step out of my reading comfort zone and you help me do that. Plus, who doesn't want a chance to win chocolate chip cookies every once in awhile?"--Jane B.
"I love your daily column and I feel like after all these years we are best friends. Keep up the great writing, there are so many of us out here that depend on you!"--Pat H.
"Dear Suzanne, I joined your book club in December and look forward to reading with you every day. Now you have become part of my daily routine. Every morning I greet your column with such joy. It's like a visit with a best friend." Warm hugs--Val
