2019 Year in Review

“…the love of learning, the sequestered nooks, and all the sweet serenity of books” –Morituri Salutamus by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Currently reading:
2019 Books I’ve Read

Updates each time I add a book to my “Read” pile.  So check back periodically.  Plus you can shuffle through the years to see how my reading habits have changed.  Pretty cool!

Check me out on Goodreads!

In June I moved to Philadelphia, so you’ll be seeing some events located in Philly from now on!
