Thank you for my Holiday Bundle! Got it this afternoon. It's great! I haven't read any of the books, and two are authors that I've been meaning to read. Plus I've heard about The Chain and know it's gotten good reviews. They all look like great reads. Another thank you for including the Monday Crossword Puzzles. I might have a chance with getting some of the answers. I know the NY Times get harder as the week goes on. Jigsaw puzzle is a good pick for me as well. That will keep me busy for awhile. Thank you. It's as if you knew me well.
Hey, Scrawl Books, I just finished "The Glass Hotel" by Emily St. John Mandel in about two days and I must say it was TREMENDOUS. Thank you for delivering it to our house!!
If I lived closer I would love to come. I hope everyone has a wonderful time.

Hey Scrawl! I gave you a shout out in my new blog post of favorite kids’ books for social and emotional learning. I’m a therapist, mom, and bibliophile living in Herndon, and my son and I love your shop! Do you keep these books in stock?
Your "Where's Waldo" contest inspired Colin's Halloween costume! He is still trying to find Waldo almost daily. Today he's playing the game that came inside one of the small travel books he got from you. Thanks for igniting his joy!

Congrats, Scrawl team! Just saw your great shop on the Great American Read!!
I appreciate Scrawl Books being present last week to sell my book, "Dinner in Camelot," at the Fall for the Book event at the Richard Byrd Library, Springfield.
