Saturday Good Reads

When does an author’s self-promotion go too far? What does it mean to discard baby furniture? Where do those friends from the bar that night end up? What is it like to have a stutter?

Wow, you have provided me with a solid Saturday of top-drawer reading. And it's led me to question how on Earth did I manage to nab a mention alongside all this talent Glynn??
