My thanks to JCB  for asking me to submit a ‘five favorites’ list to her book week posts .  It was quite a mental exercise to narrow the broad field of regional Maine books down to a list of five.  I am still swooning at the company I found myself in during book week — giants of the blogosphere.

And, thank you also, Janet for the kind announcement of my new blog to your readers.  I feel as giddy as a debutante.
