Book Bits: Stacia Kane, Jeaniene Frost, Kim Harrison, Keri Arthur & Lauren Dane

Book Bits: Stacia Kane, Jeaniene Frost, Kim Harrison, Keri Arthur & Lauren Dane We skipped Book Bits last week because it was Thanksgiving here in the States. I hope others had a lovely holiday. Mine involved more shopping than was probably necessary (though we skipped shopping late on Thanksgiving or early-morning Black Friday madness), seeing Daniel Craig in all his Bond-y goodness in IMAX, eating more than I should have and having a Downton Abbey binge with my mom. It was a good...
