      Literary BFFs: Auggie Talk
Who would be your literally BFF?  I would pick two characters.  I think Meen'a from The Reluctant Matchmaker would be my first pick since we have the whole dating thing in common.  She is just dating the guys referred to her by family and friends.  I am doing the online thing.  We could compare notes and chat about the dates from hell.  I would also pick Harry Potter.  Who wouldn't want to be friends with him?  Book 1 Harry mostly.  He was into to many dangerous things toward the last books and to many of his friends seem to die.     
      Passing Books: Reading in Texas and The Space Between
What happens to your books after you've read them?  Most of my books go to the bookshelf, but lately this has become an issue.  So now I have been giving them away.  Friends come over and take some.  I am giving away books here on this blog. Check out the Clean House Giveaway.  I have a book club that does a book swap every 2 months too!  So mostly, I am giving them away!  Unless they are signed and good books I just love.  I love having some space now for new books.  LOL!
