It will feel just like shopping at Amazon: you’ll be using your same account. The one thing for you that is different is that you pick a non-profit the first time you go (which you can change whenever you want)…and the good feeling you’ll get. :) Shop ’til you help! :)

    Even if you’ve never read it, you’ve got to love Judith Viorst for giving us the title and descriptive term “Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.” My favorites, though, are her poetry for kids of all ages collections “If I Were in Charge of the World,” and “Sad Underwear.” I especially like her modernization of a few select fairy tales. As a book lover, I especially appreciate that a child manages to survive the illnesses and bumps and bruises and tummy aches of childhood by the need to finish “My—Oh Wow!—Book.”

      Thanks for writing, Lady!

      Agreed! It’s one of the great book titles. 🙂 There are many who love Judith Viorst, certainly. That’s one of the things I like about doing the Bookish Birthdays: it brings to mind authors for me, based on the somewhat random element of when they were born. 🙂
