  1. I may need to get one of those Tudor rose wax seal stamps myself! Where did you find that?

  2. Isn't it great? It's from Seasons Creations(

  3. So, clarification - are we supposed to post reviews as we read (I don't have a blog or anything other than your website to post to), or do we read like mad and see how far we've gotten in December? I'm 3 down so far and nearly done with 3 others, but I wasn't sure where to put them!

  4. You post your reviews for each book you read either here as a comment (on this page:, or on Facebook as a comment.
