A Kindle contest and a nice surprise in the mailbox

First, I want to offer my sympathies and good wishes for all of those touched by the horrific events at the Boston Marathon today

I like to visit the I Am A Reader, Not a Writer blog because there are always so many interesting books and giveaways featured.  Evidently, that blogger is not quite busy enough because there is a brand new one being started called and to celebrate, a Kindle contest is being featured.  I apologize if this doesn't quite post the way it should be...I am always bemused by the arcane language needed for all of these things and I am easily frustrated trying to get things to look pretty, especially since I am in the middle of juggling other things.

And...I was delighted to receive the new Duffy Brown book in the mail today for review.  She is going to visit my blog (squee) early in May (on the 10th) and I am looking forward to reading her title, Killer in Crinolines which is the sequel to the delightful cozy mystery Iced Chiffon (my review for this title is at this link).
