As we start into March is everyone ready for a new season soon? Spring for many of us and fall for you folks far on the other side -- you do get four seasons don't you? :-)
Thank you to all who shared last week.
Many of you like bookish merchandise but few of you buy it. Some enter giveaways, and some receive gifts. Cindi does buy some for her children; Natasha buys jewelry items and Emily occasionally buys some items. Nrlymrtl noted that she does get bookish board games. Yes- that sounds like fun.
There are quite a goodly number of collections - in addition to books. Many collect bookmarks and keychains while several collect types of bears, candles, stamps and coins and other fairly normal items. Then there are those unique items like Jolene's roosters, Carol's antique compacts, and Liss' special toys from Kinder Sorpresa chocolate. Cindi mentioned matreshika dolls and I confirmed my guess that those are the Russian nesting dolls. Then too several people who noted lack of space and clearing clutter as reasons not to have collections. I fit in that group. :-)
The Winner from SBB #88 comments is: #17 Liss, who will get a GC choice. Please let me know your choice if ready by completing the WINNER FORM.
WEEK #89 Questions
Q1. Mary P asks: What is your favourite kind of birthday cake??
A: Actually, I used to prefer pie, but now I like cake too. I love a really moist carrot cake with cream cheese icing. I also love sugar icing on any cake. My DH gives me his icing - he is so sweet to me. :-)

Q2. My bookish Question this week: a) Do you have a title languishing though you watched for it's release or eagerly purchased it but haven't read it?? b) Would you be interested in joining me for a challenge maybe in April to read that book?
A: I have several -- well maybe many-- books that are languishing. One in particular that I purchased when I learned of it last summer but haven't read yet is The Harbinger: The ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future ! I am hoping to get my ladies book club to read this for April. But even if we don't I would like to set up a challenge to read "a languishing title" in April. Let me know if any of you are interested. :-)
Thank goodness I have a husband that cooks!
