Typically I choose the former which in this case might be 2 stars instead on the latter 4 but for this one I’ll say a average 3 as really hardly anyone will read my “review” and perhaps four people will ever see my rating I might as well segue into a discussion of just how awful the Jimmy Fallon Show is or even pressing why every small pothole repair now reuires two Boston police officersIn case anyone actually reads this umHi Mom How’s retirement thus far? I’ll add my typically useless two cents about this book If I go on the basis of my personal take I felt this uite brief book read as something of an
