My beautiful friend Letizia has included “Beneath the Satin Gloves” as her e-book photo examples on her latest post…”Phone Reading”. I am grateful for her support and hope you will check out her blog in return. She is a phenomenal writer who offers clever insight into reading habits.
Please feel free to chime in with your thoughts about phone reading.
Happy weekend to you all!

Thanks for sharing the post Britt! The perfect post to read when I haven’t been able to let go of my newly bought kindle for the last 24 hrs!
Have a great weekend 🙂
Thanks, you too! : )
