I enjoyed the banter here. Nice job with the dialog.
This was very cute. I loved Liz, and her inability to put down a book...most of us here can probably relate:) Good job!
Very good job! Loved it and could totally relate!
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.
(smile) Having fun with synonyms? I was that way too..reading into the night under the covers.
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.
