Can’t wait to pick up DROWNED COUNTRY now.Finished my first vacation read: Emily Tesh’s SILVER IN THE WOOD. What a completely lovely story. So immersive for only 100 pages. @tinyfairytales This is one of my favorites yet. 💕 @HannahFergesen This just randomly pops into my head & I get angry all over again. It might haunt me forever.

Haha. @TomTorreD20 Ha we did the same thing! I vividly remember going up to the desk at Delchamps to ask if Link to the Past had been returned. @JTGloryJones Exactly!
