You are so welcome. I am just glad it is doing what I hoped - sharing more books and giving book bloggers more exposure! Yeah.

There are a bunch here I haven't heard of either and I can't wait to get to some of them! I am into Fallen Angel by Jonelle Patrick at the moment, and if anyone needs another great crime, thriller, mystery in their collection, her series is great! for her information, I think it's worth a look!
