I love building relationships with bookstore employees and taking their suggestions when I can‘t decide how to spend a gift certificate.

The Wild Hunt | Emma Seckel

I've been so ridiculously burned out that I haven't been reading much, but this book was staring me in the face from where I was sitting to work, so hey, why not? I'm giving it a shot. So far, so good.

I've been making good progress with #BookSpin; I have a line in #BookSpinBingo, and I've finished my #BookSpin and #DoubleSpin. It's just this last week the Too Muchness of work has caught up to me.
