Great Beginning! I hope you enjoy Firelight as it does sound great and I hope to get it some day. Ooo, I am envious of your reading that many books over the holidays! I wish I could have gotten through just two. :) Hope you have a great week. I'll post my Monday's beginnings tomorrow. :)

Omg I feel like a horrible blogger friend! When did you change your blog?!!!! I LOVE IT!!!! You are now bookmarked on my phone! Blogger and my phone just don't get along well so I never get to look at my feed! :( love, love, love the new look, and I promise to be a decent human being and check in now and then!

Thanks for stopping by the Wormhole! Looks like a great mailbox! I too love your new look - I read mostly in my google reader and so I don't always see new looks!
