Postscript: February 2013

February was an amazing month for Literary, etc! Thank you to everyone who made it possible. Lauren and I decided to do a monthly wrap up post to help both current and new followers. Instead of having to scroll the archives (well you can) to find exactly the post you wanted to read or are new to blog, we hope having a recap will be useful.
