This was very cute. I loved Liz, and her inability to put down a book...most of us here can probably relate:) Good job!

Good use of dialogue Carole. My Grandmother loved to play word games at the dinner table as well. Hang in there my dear Watcher.:)
I totally related with Liz - I can't put a mystery down, either. :) You really gave your characters depth. Nice job. :)

Reminds me of the verse ...

But beyond this, my son, be warned: the writing of many books is endless, and excessive devotion to books is wearying to the body. (Ecclesiastes 12:12 NAS)

Interesting way of conveying the need to concentrate. A very good read with a sense of humor ... lets apply some concentration to our food. LOL (",)

This was a fun read. I could really relate to Liz - I had wanted to live in the school library when I was much younger.

This was fun, really fun, to read. I enjoyed all the different words and synonyms and shades of meaning --and you made their banter seem so natural. Cool.
Carole, this is one of the best I've read this week. The dialogue was real and the characters engaging. I can so relate to the Grandmother. My 13 year old granddaughter is a twin to Eliza. She would also rather read than do anything else. Well done.

I liked all the dialogue.
Well done!

Great fun!
I love wordplay and reading--obviously, I was submerged in your story.
This made me so hungry! I also enjoyed reading it. i like the relationship portrayed between the girl and her grandparents.
