The Importance of the Long-Distance Book Buddy Read (LDBBR)

An admission about me: I don’t allow anything to get between me and my love of reading.  Few things in this world have enough power to convince me that putting my reading aside is a good idea.  I am a certified book-crazy person, who might unintentionally come across as someone who’s any or all of… Continue reading The Importance of the Long-Distance Book Buddy Read (LDBBR)
