99!!! You are amazing, Janet.
Thank you for your recommendations.
Not watching much television helps! I’m working to read less this year, Mary, as odd as that sounds. It’s been my goal the past few years, but I do love to read, and it’s a hard habit to ease off on. Still, plenty of other fun things out there are worth doing, too 🙂
How exciting to see Grace in Strange Disguise on your list. So glad it blessed you. I’m a big Alistair Maclean fan.
I’m sure Grace in Strange Disguise will bless many readers, Christine. And it’s always neat to find another Alistair MacLean fan 🙂
