Hello friends! Ana here – if you allow me to take one moment to talk about non-bookish stuff? My sister had her first baby this week – my niece and god-daughter Lara – I can’t begin to express how happy I am but also how sad I was that I wasn’t able to be there with them (since they are both in Brazil). Lara is the cutest thing ever, and both mom and baby are fine and I will see them in three weeks. When I will present Lara with her first book – a Smuggler in training? MAYBE.
Baby stuff done, moving onwards!
This Week on The Book Smugglers:
