36. Who do you tag? Charlie? Anyone who likes to discuss books. :D


  1. 1) I am an authoress of paper titles. 2) I just stole the books from our childhood, I wasn't allowed either. So just take them. 3) Charlie wants you to know that his favorite book is Dinosaur vs. Bedtime.

  2. I vote for Darcie also. By the way, we owe you a Christmas gift since I'm 100% sure that the t-shirt we gave you is just too small. We'll try to make it up to you when we see you next month!
