6. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE ETSY SHOP?

Jennifer:  I actually don’t go on Etsy now that my wedding is done and over.  But out of the shops I have purchased from, Nonna’s Kitchen was my favorite.  We gave custom, homemade hot sauces as one of the favors at our wedding in Mexico, and she printed little sugar skulls, as well as our name and wedding date on them.  And they were tasty!

Moning, and I have to go with the whole series, because there isn’t one book in particular I like over the others.  They all rock!  Non-fiction – I don’t really read it, but I thought Judging A Book by Its Lover: A Field Guide to the Hearts and Minds of Readers Everywhere by Lauren Leto was hysterical! Jessica: Fiction would be the Harry Potter series or the Dark Tower series. I don’t read a lot of non-fiction, but I recently read Unbroken and it was heartbreaking and amazing. Kristina: Fic – Forever Amber and Non-Fic – Devil in the White City BookShelfery
