My book blog now has its own home. Please visit me at LYNNE'S BOOK REVIEWS. Of course you're more than welcome to see what's going on in my personal life, but if you want to talk books, that's where I'll be!

To say that my brother Mike, who is 16 years younger than myself, made a slight detour in his life while growing up is putting it mildly. That is why the following letter he received yesterday means more to him - and to our family - than anyone will ever know.

Basketball news: Eric's team won all three of their games yesterday. So in a few minutes we are headed over to Illinois for a 12:20 game and a 2:30 championship game. E played really well yesterday. Had some great blocks, rebounds and a few points in each game.

Eric took this of me with my girls yesterday :)
