Hello once more on Saturday Night. I hope everyone is doing well and that any friends in the Northeast came through Sandy okay. I am feeling good about moving into the final months of the year. How about you? I didn't get my review posted today so I will probably do that tomorrow. We have Daylight Savings tonight so we 'fall back' and gain an hour.
This is the month to Give Thanks... so be thinking about something you are thankful for as I expect I will be raising the question in the next week or two.
Thank you to all who shared last week.
The majority of you would like illustrations in the re-released classics and several preferred the original classic versions. Although I agree that illustrations don't do well on eReaders, like the Kindle, I think they do fine on the tablets. I thought nrlymrtl's comment was interesting - she doesn't like illustrations if she already has an image in mind.
Most everyone would participate in the nicer and fun events of Halloween. Faith Hope and CherryTea had a great idea of dressing up and visiting the elderly to share with them. :-)

WEEK #73 Questions
Q1. Carol L asks: If you could pick one female literary character and swap lives for a week, who would you choose??
I passed this question for a while as I thought it had been asked but as I reviewed the spreadsheet I did not find it. Sooo - now to answer. It is the same female literary character I had answered I would want to visit with: If I could swap a week I would want to live a week as Eve Dallas from the "In Death" series by J.D. Robb (Nora Roberts).
Q2. What are your favorite cleaning products.??
A: Ha! First this assumes I clean. Well I do... some. My favorite cleaning products are: Simple Green for the kitchen (although I still like 409 for grease and spots); Scrubbing Bubbles for the bathroom; Windex for windows; and Swifter dusters for dusting. Those are my standbys. I did recently see a blog about making your own substitutes! Several use old-fashioned white vinegar.

Thanks to those who are sending in Questions. DON'T BE SHY! Surely everyone has a Q or two you'd like to ask. Input suggestions in this Suggested Question Form. At the end of each month I will draw from the suggestions I used the month before and that person will get a book choice or GC. I thank everyone for submitting questions but some of you others might want to get in a question or two as we have a few people submitting most of the questions so far. Either way - it works for me. :-) The question list is being replenished! Thanks for sending in questions!
