Hi!

I found you from the #kidlit on twitter.

Just wanted to invite you, a fellow book lover, to consider joining my on Fridays for my meme "Feed me books Friday"

Moms link up their favorites and it's a lot of fun to learn about all the titles and add them to our library list.

Hope you'll consider joining us sometime. Next week on linker will win a gift card!
