BookTube-A-Thon 2017 TBR

This past week, I discovered this awesome thing called BookTube-A-Thon. Here's a quick video about what it is specifically: Basically it is a week-long reading marathon where everyone tries to read as much as possible.

Supporting Authors

I love to read. Always have and hopefully always will. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to buy very many books (thank goodness for libraries).

Devious Distractions

I’ve been thinking a lot about what distracts me from writing. Hmmm…I guess thinking about what distracts me from writing is also distracting me from writing, but that’s not the point. The exercise showed me that 90% of the time, it is my own internal struggles that keep me from getting my big butt in... Continue Reading →
