  1. Enjoyed your comment re: Reader’s Digest Condensed Books. Those were a staple for me also! Introduced me to all the James Herriott books, Agatha Christie – the wonderful Mrs. Pollifax stories!

    Thank you for a fun and informative interview.

  2. I went to hear Ruta last night at the bookstore and she gave a very moving talk – if you get a chance to go hear her, I highly recommend it!
