Book Club: Upcoming Selections

It's a wrap! Another year in books

 Hello lovely friends,

Some remember that I used to log the books I had read in a notebook before starting a book blog in 2008.  I maintained my blog until discovering Goodreads in 2012, and my book blog died a slow death…  This brings me to today, I cannot believe I’m writing another year in review update.  How have I been doing this for thirteen years?
