  1. I thought there was only one book out this week that I really, really wanted. It turns out there is another must read and a whole list of I-want-that’s out this week. I need to quit following you but I can’t; I might miss something. I usually have a pretty good idea of what is coming out ahead ot team but at least once a month I see a book here that I hadn’t paid attention to or that I had completely missed. Thank you!!!
