I'm curious. As a reader, do you connect with your favorite authors on twitter? If you do, I'd love to know what you as a reader want to hear, learn, connect about with those authors? I'm going to put this question out on twitter too and see what answers come back.

Second, when do you use twitter? Day of week, time of day? That kind of thing.

Book Review - Scent Of Lilacs by Ann H. Gabhart

This is one of those books I actually wanted to read just because I liked the cover so well. Of course it didn't hurt that it was written by Ann Gabhart, I have read and enjoyed several of her Shaker novels. Based on the cover I thought I was going to get a Young Adult coming-of-age type story with a little mystery, all set in a Mayberryesque town. I was very pleasantly surprised to find so much more than that.…

An unusual novel, deals with relevant subject matter
