October 2020 WRAP-UP
Not much has been happening recently here, apart from a few book reviews, not as many as I would want of course, I have read so many great books waiting for their review!
I did start something new, Throwback Thursday, to highlight posts written 10 years ago, as my book blog turned 10 in September.
Well at least, I have done some serious reading, reaching in fact almost my highest average per month this year.
