This Month we had another wonderful Rave Reviews meeting. We shared some delicious holiday treats and talked about some wonderful books we’ve all been reading.

This is particularly true since I don’t deal with suspense. I don’t have it in me to wait on cliffhangers so, if an episode leaves something unfinished, and I have the option of watching the next episode immediately, I will.
