Good News Story, by Heather Reisman

I was told by one of my retail friends that Heather's business card title is "chief book lover" at Indigo and that she is a very avid reader so I hope she gets to read my Blog as I want to say a BIG THANKS to her for supporting literacy on PEI and everywhere. Keep up the great work Heather as you have now made "Tim's Picks" a list I'm going to develop for people who help fund some of the many much needed causes here on PEI...Thanks Heather...
