Thank you so much for picking up this book. Please make a journal entry here on this page if you haven’t already done so to let me know that this book has found a good home.

I really hope you enjoy the book you found! When you’re done reading it, you can make another journal entry with your comments here to let me know what you thought of it. You can keep the book forever and ever or pass it on to someone else. If you’re giving it to someone directly, make another journal entry saying so.

If you register, you will be alerted by e-mail each time someone makes another journal entry. It’s all confidential (you’re known only by your screen name and no one is ever given your e-mail address), free, and spam-free. Then you can track this book as it goes on its journey!

Journal Entry 3 by authorauthor at Alexandria, Virginia USA on Friday, August 17, 2018
Apparently I picked this one up at a Bookcrossing event several years ago and never wrote a journal entry. Ooops. Set in a midwestern university town, it's a "wickedly funny comedy that is also a darkly poignant slice of life."

After today's meet-up, I stopped off at this LFL on my way home. It was practically empty, so I put all the meet-up leftovers in it.
