#athomeYALC Wrap Up

If COVID-19 wasn't sweeping the world and causing complete chaos, this past weekend would have been YALC and LFCC. Our bodies would be achy from all the standing around and hauling books left, right and centre, we'd be running on single-digit hours of sleep, and we'd be endlessly fanning ourselves down because the Olympia doesn't… Continue reading #athomeYALC Wrap Up

Have I Read My 2019 Anticipated Releases?

After a week or so's unplanned hiatus, I am back with a post I was inspired to write after reading @SylviaReadsBooks's recent post.

How I Fit Reading Into My Day

We all want the time to sit down and read, but sometimes our lives don't give us that opportunity. We're dashing around from place to place, caring for people or animals, working, studying, trying to keep ourselves healthy or well enough to function etcetera. It's not always easy.
