Talking as Fast as I Can: From Gilmore Girls to Gilmore Girls, and Everything in Between by Lauren Graham | Book Review
This book is wonderful!  And it was released at a perfect time for me.  I had just come off maternity leave, during which I watched the original Gilmore Girls and Parenthood, so I was positively steeped in Lauren Graham.  Confession: I bought this book for ...

By Hook or by Crook by Betty Hechtman | Audiobook Review
