Hello, fellow romance addicts! We are pleased to say our May meeting was a great success! We reviewed our April reads (Into the Wilderness by Sara Donati, The Demise of Alexis Vancamp by Karen Williams), and had a great discussion about the definition of the modern romance novel, as well as the modern urban fiction novel. We hope you will join us next time to continue our discussion!

Pepa with paper flowerDay 1: Ah spring! In like a lion, out like a gerbil! Fresh grass, cherry blossoms, and magnolias to sniff. It's really a gerbil's paradise. 

Day 2: Tried to help the teens make rubber band bracelets. They told us chewing the bands isn't exactly helping. We parted due to artistic differences. Maybe making flower pens is where Salt and I can really make our artistic mark.
