All about Beth Ann, Real Life and Reading Lists

That’s a lot of wonderful life!

She and her husband donate 50 cents for every comment on her blog to her organization of the month. Isn’t that great?! One of her favorite works to support is the Little Free Library organization. Beth Ann recently set up her own official Little Free Library near where she lives.
