I just finished reading this book. I started yesterday, and finished yesterday. I'm a fast reader, but this book was so good, I couldn't put it down. Luckly my kids were napping, so my hyper-focusing didn't neglect anyone :) Anyhow, I reccomend that you read it if you get the chance - it doesn't take much time, and it is well worth the read, as a Christmas book, and a year-round good read. Oh, and make sure you have an empty mason jar on-hand for once you are finished - you will be inspired to put it to good use.
