Although this blog isn’t only about books, I’d be remiss if I didn’t share my great love of books. And since I do love books, I’m dedicating this entire page to books and all things bookish (in addition to any posts I may write about books and bookish subjects). So this page will be the repository for all things books.
Keep checking back as I’ll update this page frequently.
