(my reading and keeping track of books dropped sharply during the wonderful month of December, when our daughter/husband adopted a baby boy born in Chicago, took care of him there til the adoption was official, while we flew up to Oregon to care for their 2-year old son. After a week back home, the whole family came down to California for 8 wonderful, fun, nonstop days!
Happy 2008 to all!)
