Although I do consider this blog my blog headquarters, I also post regularly at SmallWorld Reads, my reading and writing blog. I love the world of book blogging. I have found stacks of interesting books by reading book reviews, and at this moment, Dr. H. is putting up yet another new bookshelf. That would make about the 232nd shelf in our house.
Here's what's been happening over at SmallWorld Reads, in case you haven't been visiting there, too. Not only was August a month filled with lazy summer days at our home, but it was also a fabulous month for reading—due largely to a long vacation.
