    • Thanks, Mary, enjoy your August, too. I agree that the month had lots of fabulous books, and I have high hopes for the new month. I continued reading The Bookshop on the Corner last night, and I’m really loving it. The MC is still trying to work around the obstacles to her little “bookshop,” which has been fun.
