Through the Woods by Emily Carroll & a Blip About ShortBox

 Through the Woods was a random recommendation from Barnes and Noble, and the book that inadvertently made me a fan of ShortBox.  (Where’s the connection?

Tal Gur gave me a copy of his book, The Art of Fully Living, recently to review. I think his work speaks for itself; it has a near-perfect 5-star rating on Amazon. Maybe it can do something for you, too.
