Beautiful People!

I’ve been reading THREE books at the same time. I started with a soft copy of AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED but then NEPA took their light for four good days and I was extremely bored, so I went to the bookshelf and found this SOJOURNER TRUTH and since it was a small read, I finished on time and started LOTTERY WINNER by MARY HIGGINS CLARK.
