But now it is summer vacation and I want to get back into blogging. This summer you can expect: More… Continue reading Finally! I’m Back!
I had such a great time doing the Dewey’s 24 Hour read-a-thon. I posted a few updates throughout the day, but I got a lot of reading done. When I heard about this read-a-thon, I was excited to join in. Unlike Dewey’s, this is a weeklong read-a-thon that runs from May 11th to May 17th.… Continue reading Bout of Books 13 Read-a-thon!
