I hope you had a great weekend. I was baking and writing.
Doing a little book club housekeeping today.
1. The new Penguin Classic is posted. Reader response has been overwhelming. Cold Comfort Farm is a hilarious classic. Be sure to read the sample and you can enter the Penguin Book Bag giveaway. I have a book bag just like it and I use it every day. For the sample read and the giveaway go to: http://tinyurl.com/35ylrr
2. Remember to keep the book club fun. Only read what you like. Hit the delete key when something isn't a good match for you. If you're going on an extended vacation and you'd like your emails suspended for a bit, just let us know the stop and start dates and we'll be happy to oblige.

Well, that's a wrap. Tune in tomorrow and I'll tell you about Minnie, the woman who used to sell me penny candy when I was a kid. And of course I'll be giving away my favorite "penny candy," too.
If you have a minute, drop me a line. I absolutely love to hear from readers. You're the best.
Thanks for reading with me. It's so good to read with friends.
