That's a lot of reading! And you make time for critiques as well. Whew!

Jess said...

Hey Sarah,
There's an award for you at http://bookpublishing.today.com. Thanks!

Jess
p.s. I really enjoy your Twitter too, although I think you know that. :)

Sarah Rettger said...

Thanks, Jess! I tried to leave a comment on your blog, but it doesn't seem to have saved.

Stephanie, a copy showed up just after you left your comment, and it was thoroughly enjoyable! I'm on the hunt for quinoa now.

Patty - somehow, yes. But that's why the blog hasn't gotten much attention lately. Must do something about that.

Vivian said...

This is a good reminder that I need to read more of these. Hope you're well!

Under the Covers said...

Wow. I'm impressed, and a little envious. My leisure reading time these days is limited to the time I spend on my elliptical machine. Let's just say I'm neither as fit or as well read as I should be.

Sarah Rettger said...

Under the Covers, I get a lot of my reading done on the exercise bike.

One of these days, Vivian, we'll make our way through the pile.
