Yay Debi, I'm so glad you signed up. I liked the way you made my GLBT umbrella far more concise than I managed...I might have to use your wording when I host this next year!

PS - I wish I could start it in June, too, but I figured I'd give the signups a month before we got going. Then I could say 6 books in 6 months. I'm thinking of doing it March to September next year or something.
