  2. nice header- goes very well with the blog, I also like the little icon for your "about me" section - I actally prefer the girl with the ponytail reading instead of the glamour girl in the header but that's just me

    BTW, I love the header. After reading your comments this morning, I went back to your blog and was amazed and jealous at how cool it was. Definitely like the chick and her wicked chair! It's a keeper!

  15. You know, I have somehow managed to go through life without ever once reading a Danielle Steele novel. I've always been afraid of the romance aspect, but with book reviewing, I'm becoming more open, and this one does just look so cute!

  19. I've read one book by Steel - Toxic Bachelor - but not really enjoying it. I wonder if Steel every novels by Steel feature slightly old-ER characters? Or only characters in "Toxic Bachelor" are old?
