I is for … Indulgent re-reading

B is for … barely a story

Okay, that’s rather unkind, but there is a danger this post may turn into a slight rant. My “B” book selection was BR Paulson’s Barely Alive. Now, one thing I’m loving about this challenge is that I’m finding all kinds … Continue reading

Got (half) a minute?
