I'm so glad Susan nominated United Tweets! It is a fun book. I know it is over the "page limit" threshold, but that's only because we have 50 states. I suppose we could lop off a few of the problematic ones ...

No nomination here, just one excited panelist ...

I'm so glad that Jackie nominated "What To Do About Alice?" which is a fine book! History is fun, and full of interesting people like Alice Roosevelt.

Tricia, let's start the United Tweets fan club! I found out about it from your blog--and ordered two copies. One for home and one I gave to my son's teacher.
