What Have I Done?

My second week of classes begins tomorrow and I still have some writing to get done by the time my class starts at 5:30 p.m. And I have to work too. And get my kids off to their first days of school for the year. I’m at a bit of a turning point here. I…

NOW

February TBR Challenge Update

In January I read Nick Hornby’s Funny Girl, so I’m right on track to win the TBR Challenge this year… just have to figure out which book in my pile I’m reading in February. February, which is half over. Hmm… I’ve long been a fan of Nick Hornby’s. I’m not sure where I started with…
