GOOD BOOKS FOR YOUR WEEK-END
The first migrating robin is back around Chicago! I know it does not mean that snow is over, but still, that’s a good sign.
This past week was very rich in literary events, and my book fishing has brought quite a few exciting titles. But as I am currently reading/listening to… how many books? did you count on my left menu? that looks like 8 books at the same time!!, it means I won’t get soon to these.
By the way, did you see on the menu also that I just got an award? this is so much fun!
Let me know if you’ve read these books yet and what you think
