Hi Mrs. White,

If nobody wants the book, I will take it. I often list books that I don't care for on Paperback Swap. Usually someone else wants to read it. Then I get a "credit" for sending the book to that person and can order a book that I want to read with that credit. I do appreciate your honesty about the book, though. Also, I hope you are feeling better this week!! I admire how you keep going and keep a good attitude even when your health isn't good. I deal with chronic pain and fatigue and my attitude isn't always as good as it should be. Thanks for the great example. :)
