What is it about books!

At the beginning of the year I lost my reading mojo and flitted about trying unsuccessfully to source something I wanted to read. Then I remembered Twilight, which I recently blogged about. Afterwards, I read Claimed by Seraphym, followed closely, Watching Glass Shatter, both exceptionally entertaining reads. All of them were large books, which I… Continue reading What is it about books!
