Thank you to the other contestants. I encourage all of you to purchase the book and embrace it at upcoming book clubs. Goldberg does make appearances at them to discuss her book.

Apparently the cuzins are having a bitter feud over this one. Who will be the first to step forward and ask Frankie8 if they can borrow it once he/ she has finished reading it?

Ronda, I understand that. Once I have read it just let me know how to pass it on and I will do so. As far as I am concerned everyone that wants to can borrow it. I would, however like for those doing so to autograph as it goes around. Which reminds me of this from the Harry Potter series. Which came first the chicken or the egg? Answer. A circle has no beginning and no end.

Congrats, Frankie. And truly the book is yours to do with as you desire. Perhaps you'd care to host a reading club and Caryn could come to discuss the book with you and your friends.

I'm sending a pm now. May the good egg circle remain unbroken and uncle Humpty never fail to fall.
