Good taste in books!

Katie said...

Where is your tcbotb template?

Priya said...

H- thanks!

Katie- I'm still trying different templates. I took the tcbotb template out for now because something funny happened to my template. I may use it in the future, but I'm not sure. I'm still trying some other designs, and I found a website that shows how to do a three-column blog. So I may be looking at those too.

Oh, I really like this template. Lovely.

Beth Kephart said...

My gosh, Priya. You have read a lot. I was just talking about you the other day to a mother-daughter book club (thirteen year old girls) and telling them about your really interesting feature on Shannon Hale. The girls ended up picking a Shannon Hale book for their next read. I'm sending them to your review today.

Oh my gosh Beth, thank you so much!
