    I don’t know if this is a new feature or one that I just happen to have missed in the past, but I like it! Thanks! And I love Square One Books, too. We are so lucky to have them in the Junction.

    I hope this continues monthly. It has been wonderful for my 9-year-old daughter and myself to use for ideas in picking out books to read before school starts.

Sorry, comment time is over.
