    My company publishes Little House books, so if anyone wants a copy, I can look around. If I don’t see a freebie, my discount for the holidays is 65%. Lasts until 12/10, I think, then goes back to 50%… so if anyone wants any HarperCollins fitness, health, cooking, or guilty pleasure books, let me know.

    Did one at women’s Rx’d! My time is ridiculous because I’m still the slowest runner ever. Plus I walked some. But no purple string for the pull ups since the reps weren’t too high. And 35# kb. 20:27
    My gmail account is Jaicat@… for anyone interested in HarperCollins books.
