Cassandra Frear said...

I like your Saturday Good Reads so much, I wish I had thought of it.

But I know I don't read as much as you do, Glynn!

My question: How many hours a week or a day do you spend reading online? Are you a very fast reader? And how do you make time for it?

Maureen said...

Such a basket of sweet offerings to go with this morning's coffee.

Thank you for including me.

Michael said...

Glynn, thank you for your ongoing support and encouragement. I've said it before, but I really respect and look up to you.

Graceful said...

Hey Glynn, Thanks for including my posts. I'm with Cassandra...I wonder how much time each week approx. you dedicate to online? Do you have any tricks?

Laura said...
