You *know* we will buy this for you! From the Tunxis Library geeks…

I ordered this for the library with you in mind and it should be ready for you in the next couple of days, Hendree. Great timing!

You guys are amazing! The book fairy visited me, and I found it in my mailbox yesterday. Thanks TL geeks!
