    1. LOL. I'm on NY time too. Kathy at I'm a Reader asked that posts go up before midnight to ensure all links are active. I wasn't sure if I'd be awake to double check at midnight. So, you're not off time, I am!

  22. I got all the books but missed a few authors.
    I love Spring. It's when the cold and ice of winter melts away and flowers begin to bloom. The grass becomes green again. The birds chirp in the trees. And the weather warms, which is probably the very best part! So far, I have experienced many April showers. I can't wait for their inevitable consequence: flowers!
    Thanks for the giveaway and Happy Spring!
