Hey Lovely LadyI Surprise!!! I have nominated you for the Liebster Blogger Award. Don’t get too excited now 😉 click here to find out more. http://urbanbookthief.wordpress.com/2013/05/22/i-won-an-awesome-blog-award-shucks-guys/
Well, well, well, well … WELL! Miss Bates turned 50 this year!
Aha! That is fabulous! Explains the Woodiwiss kinship! Did you read Anya Seton, Jean Plaidy, et al? Let’s hear it for 1963 babies 🙂
Miss Bates didn’t read any of those lovely writerly ladies. Miss Bates lost about 30 years of romance reading to forgettable literary fiction. She never regrets the classics though. When the romance fiction renewal was burgeoning, she spent a whole summer reading JANE EYRE over & over again & watching all the versions of it ever made.
May the Powers That Be grant you a long & fruitful life … and much blogging success, whenever The Turn (to 50) may be.
