  • Did you miss the Oprah episode where Jenna spoke about infertility and loss? In the great tradition of Beagle's traveling book, Jenna is willing to send out a disc of Oprah's show as well as some extra behind the scenes footage. The disc will pass from blogger to blogger in a similar vein to Beagle's traveling book.
