To slightly paraphrase the philosopher Joey Tribbiani, Christmas is a time for giving and receiving and having and sharing. For me, it’s for sure a time of books.

Christmas and January Book Haul

For a book blogger, I can be pretty poor at sharing what books I’ve got. That’s something I really need to change in 2019, and I aim to start it now.
