Our Focus Group Turns Seven!

Lynn: Happy Labor Day Weekend! We hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing weekend. Today is also a big day for our focus group. The boys turn seven! They started testing books for us when they were five and now two years later they take their job very seriously! Here is a picture of them taken this summer at the beautiful Meijer Gardens.


Cindy: Where does the time go? I just sent both daughters off to college, and our focus group is now SEVEN. The boys do take their work seriously and we appreciate their feedback in addition to that of our middle and high school students in our book club. You’ll see a new blog category, “Twins’ Thumbs Up – Age 7,” to go with this latest rite of passage. Happy Birthday, Hayden & Mason! Now that you’ve blown out your candles and eaten your cake, GET BACK TO WORK–read something!
