  1. You came up with some really interesting occupations and book titles. The DiVinci Code and To Kill a Mocking Bird were favorites.


  2. Oh, this is such a creative idea for a Top 10 meme, Margaret! I’d put bookseller at the top of my list, too! That’s a really interesting thing to contemplate, too: jobs that fictional characters have. Hmm….lots of ‘food for thought’ here, so thanks.


  3. I’m actually working on becoming an accredited genealogist right now. All I have left is the testing, which is, unfortunately, on hold during the pandemic. I’ll get there eventually! I haven’t read IN BITTER CHILL, so I’m definitely going to take a closer look at that one.

    Happy TTT!
