  1. Hi Kristina! Thanks as always for the links — want you to know I’ve been enjoying checking out this page every day, you’re doing a fantastic job!!

    Best wishes,


    1. hi Laura! thanks so much– your weekly blogosphere posts are the best though–anyone reading this who doesn’t happen to know of them should go check em out. Love to share anything cool I read so I’m glad you (and others) enjoy these posts! best to you and happy blogiversary!


  2. Kristina, you’re not the only one who ate up Donald J. Sobol’s Encyclopedia Brown book series! Aw, man! Part of my childhood died with the news that Donald J. Sobol, creator of the Encyclopedia Brown kidlit mysteries has died! I also loved Sobol’s teen spy comedy-mystery SECRET AGENTS FOUR. God bless Sobol for living a long life and writing so many awesome books! He was one of the authors that made me want to be a writer when I was a youngster. He will be missed, to say the least!


    1. I know what you mean about Sobol’s books inspiring you to be a writer, at that age I even wrote a (poor) version of those mysteries myself. Sure he got a great many kids interested in the genre, reading& writing, what a great legacy!
