Bookish Habits

This post is part of Six for Sunday run by Steph from A Little but a Lot.

I am a creature of habit for sure. If there’s something I find that works for me I will stay with it for as long as I possibly can. It’s true for restaurants and coffee shops, but’s definitely true for books.
