  1. Oh, gosh! Don't link to my HECK review, because it's not a review, it's a "I didn't finish this because it wasn't my cup of tea" post! Gah!

    Move along, readers! There's nothing to see here, move along, please. LOOK! DarlaD posted about 13 Treasures on Books & Other Thoughts and she's AWESOME and that is a fantastic book! *distracts from Heck link*
