I won a copy of this book through bookreporter.com.  I'm so excited.  I guess I'll take it off my WL.  This is the 2nd book I've won since I've been hanging out on this forum.

Well! Congratulations to you, Donna! Isn't is just most fun to win book giveaways?!? Linda has won several books over the past year through various book blogs & book review sites.

Fun! When I found an ARC of Lisa See's brand new book in my mailbox, I squealed like a little girl, lol.

Well, the book came today and it's not an ARC.  It's a gorgeous HB!  I guess I'll be reading it next.

Donna, I am first in line on the WL for the book - hint, hint! ;-)

No pressure - you may want to keep it!

Don't you just love hardbacks? I think if I won the lottery, that's one of the luxuries I'd indulge in--reading and owning only the hardcopy versions of my favorites! Just don't tell my briefcase that flies around the globe....oh, right....I wouldn't work anymore, either!

Felicia, I'm sure I'll post it when I'm done.  I don't have room for very many keepers.  If you already have it by then, I'll offer it here first.
