Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by the Colorado stop of the Reading Road Trip!!! This is my first of two states I'm hosting (the other being Wyoming on Thursday)! Sorry its a bit late getting up (I haven't really been home that much to post lately). I've been pretty busy as of late so I haven't had the chance to really schedule much in advance!!!! But I'm here now, thats what counts!!! So thanks to Britta (I Like These Books) & Hafsah (IceyBooks) for hosting the Reading Road Trip!
