My book beginnings is taken from WHITE COLLAR GIRL by Renee Rosen:

"It was Voltaire and me.  I stood inside the Tribune Tower and stared at his quote inscribed in the limestone:   "I do not agree with a word that you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."

I LOVE Ms. Rosen's books.

I finished this book last week.  Loved it.

THE HUNDRED GIFTS by Jennifer Scott

It was a wonderful book for Christmas.

My review will be up on November 19.
