A Quote to Begin the Day…

“Sleep is good, he said, and books are better.”
                              ~George R. R. Martin

Hello fellow Bookworms,

I think part of the definition of a Book Lover, is one who loses sleep while caught up in the midst of a great book. Tell me in the comments, what the last book was that kept you up late at night!

Happy Wednesday!

Enjoy!

A Question or Two for You:

Hi Everyone,

Happy last day of July!!! July was a big month in the world of literature. New surprise releases from Harper Lee and Dr. Seuss. Were you excited about either of these titles? If so, have you read either one yet? I am excited about both releases and I am very anxious to read both stories, one day. Now I know, there has been some controversies and disappointments concerning Go Set a Watchman, but my excitement hasn’t decreased at all. What about you?

What do you want to see more of on this site? Leave a comment below, telling me what you would like to see, as a regular feature here. I appreciate your continued support and I will try to incorporate some of your suggestions.
