  1. Thank you so much for sharing this!! I am currently reading Sing You Home, and can't put it down. I've been a huge fan of Jodi Picoult for years, and I go and see her every year at her book signings. I can't wait to go this year!! Anyway, thanks again for sharing this, I will definitely be in attendance!

    Happy reading!

  2. You're welcome Brandi! Sadly, I've not read a Jodi Picoult book yet (hangs head in shame), but I've heard such wonderful things about her writing that I am definitely going to check one out. Actually, Sing You Home looks to be right up my alley. I think I just may purchase one of the autographed copies that are going to be available so I can help support her charity.

    Happy Reading to you too! =)
