JUST SO YOU KNOW... I warmly welcome comments on my blog and will always try to return visits from fellow bloggers. However, anything of a commercial nature (and, certainly, anything of a SPAM nature) will be deleted. Although this was not always the case, I no longer accept books or any other sort of product in exchange for a review on my blog and also am not interested in author interviews, book tours, blog awards, etc. I have far too many books in my TBR pile already and far too many that I adore and still intend to find time to blog about. Thanks!
