We’re BACK, Bit… ahem- Blogging Buddies!

Let me just say, taking a month off blogging was HARD!  I didn’t even realize how addicted and habitual Birdie Bookworm has become.  Seriously, I had to work to not come on and update stuff.  Frequently I failed!  Angie Elle called me out once, when she noticed my ‘currently reading’ magically update.  I also couldn’t resist responding […]

The Wonderful World of Webtoons!

I jumped on the bandwagon late, and I think maybe I’m outside the target age group, but damn have I gotten bitten by the webtoon bug! It happened by accident.  I stumbled on a Buzzfeed article about the author of Small World, and that was the rabbit hole that led me to the Webtoon app, […]

Flights of Fancy | A Rose by Any Other Name?

I’ve realized something about myself lately, and I’m finding it a little bit alarming.  I need to know if I’m the only one out there with this affliction!
