        Cinnamon rolls are in the oven and should be ready right at start time.

        So I don’t inundate my readers with posts, I will only be doing blog posts every three to four hours.  I will update hourly on twitter, so feel free to follow me (@jennsbookshelf).

        Just as a reminder, I will be reading for two charities, so please wish me luck!  Ok, I’ll be back in a few hours!!
