All your book choices are fantastic. Water for Elephants and Middlesex is a must read. You wouldn't be disappointed.

To Ms. Grain de Beaute

I have just read some of your posts. I like the creativity you have displayed and the narration you have provided with the same. I would like to revisit your posts.

If you love seeing paintings and reading short stories, then a short visit to my blogs would be a good idea.
