Hey guys!
I love the PDF with all the books and episodes featured- a great idea! I have a bunch of organizing projects I need to take on like this, that I have been waiting for an intern to help me with, but I think I need to move this up the queue in terms of importance. You are wonderful!

Thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind words.

Actually, the great JOMB book list idea is thanks to Vivian of so we can’t take any credit for it.

See you soon at the LD Podcast,

I really enjoyed hearing this interview. Now I’m convinced to do an episode that focuses on Nutcracker Noel.

Thanks JOMB!
