Yes, I have read it, but will gladly reread it. It is one of the first lesbian novels I found when I started looking in 2005.

Ah well. I'm practising for my old age lol

I feel old tonight anyway - I had my sister and her four children (5, 4, 3 and 1) staying last night, this is the only sister that ensures she comes to see us regularly. I was up at 0600h and have read book after book to very excited children, played games non-stop, been to the beach and dug sandcastles and swum. They have just gone after a holiday supper of fish and chips. I am knackered!

You are preaching to the faithful about that "old" feeling! We just had my North Carolina niece, husband and 2 kids (aged 4 and 2 1/2) here for a week. I got to read a lot of books too...The Princess and the Pizza was my favorite. I loved every minute they were here, but every one of my 68-year-old bones knew what "knackered" meant by the time they left! Image

OKay, it's been too long since I did anything about the challenge. Are we still interested? If so, I believe it's Deej's turn. it says she's picked Stone Butch Blues. Is that right?
