MOTM for Oct 2017: Katiesquilts

Post by bookowlie » 30 Sep 2017, 22:25

I am excited to announce the October 2017 Member of the Month is…drumroll please…Katiesquilts! She joined the site two years ago and gives thoughtful input on various topics, even starting several interesting discussion threads. Katiesquilts’ reviews are well written and insightful, and she regularly comments on other members’ reviews. She is quick to help when members have questions or problems with the review process or other sections of the site. Katiesquilts’ advice is clear and detailed so newer members, in particular, can easily follow the steps to resolve their issue. She posts on a wide variety of topics, including international cooking, author disputes, BOTM discussions, and general reading discussions. Let’s all give a round of applause to Katiesquilts for her many positive contributions!

I met you Behind the Door in May.

Congratulations, Katiesquilts!

P.S. Do you make quilts? I bet you've read and watched How to Make an American Quilt.

Congrats Katiesquilts!
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.

Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.
