Bon martin, mes dames et monsieurs et tout les personnes. Not gonna lie.  March, April?  They were months.  I’m just going to be honest and straight up say that I slowed down even more on my reading compared to usual, and it should surprise no one that I did no writing.  That said, it was more or less what I anticipated from the month.  I needed a do-nothing break and while I wouldn’t say I feel rejuvenated, I would say that I feel less trampled.  But that’s enough of that – I have an upcoming post with an apology/explanation for next week. Maintenant, let’s look […]

Here in the book community, we love book tags.  And it occurred to me… we really need a tag for this new site!  There are so many cool features and the fact that it’s literally designed to help people find new reads is screaming for a tag… because a lot of the time, book […]

Good Riddance, 2020! My December Wrap Up.

Hello everyone!  Good morning and HAPPY JANUARY 4TH 2021.  I know that 2021 isn’t going to solve all our problems.  Or any of it, actually, but the illusion of hope and change and new beginnings are always nice tings to hold on to – it gives us a little bit o strength to pick ourselves up and persevere. *deep breath* 2021 y’all. But not without one last wrap up, and then we can say adieu, right?  So lets do this. All the things I’ve been reading I allowed myself to have a fairly light reading month in December.  I read some […]
