>For more postcard fun, visit postmistress Marie Reed!

This is a fun Meme. I first saw it on Daryl’s blog. She encouraged me to join so I did. I was going to post my postcards in order I received them, but looking through them I realized they weren’t in order. So I just decided to mix them up.

I entered a read a fest, which included a drawing for free books and I won a book and a shirt, this postcard was in the book. This is the ‘college’ featured in the book.

And this is the back of the card. This is the book I won and Kristi (as if you couldn’t tell) is the main character in the book. I really like Lisa Jackson’s books and am looking forward to reading this one.
