20 Questions with the Ladies of Bea's Book Nook!

Bea: Take off  my day clothes, including bra, put on my jammies and read or watch a movie or show on NetFlix.

    1. Everyone should watch Monty Python. We actually watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail in one of my high school history classes. I had the best teachers.
