Thanks so much for stopping by my blog, I may love Debbie Macomber but I haven't read everything she's written and some books I didn't finish.

Your pick sounds really sad. I wonder if the library has it...wander off to write a reminder note

A graphic novel of short stories? Wow. I've never heard of such a thing but it does sound intriguing.

This looks like a beautiful book. If the artwork is anything like the cover, than I'm already a fan. Great find, I'm adding it to my wish list.

That's a pretty cover. I haven't really gotten into graphic novels. I think the trend just passed me over.

I think you are the one who finally convinced me to try graphic novels. I am still very far behind the curve but I read what I can and I think this book sounds lovely. It's one I will add to my list (I'm glad my computers working again, I missed visiting your blog).
