  1. Great job on reading 18 books. See what I read this month at Girl Who Reads

  2. As you noted Kristin no books again in common this month but still we are enjoying our reading. I do keep an eye on your Instagram and notice what you are up to. But I am only sporadically there.! All the best for September.
