My favorite TV mystery series

My favorite TV mystery series

September 6, 2016 2016, Top Ten Tuesday 2

I think the one thing which ties these… Read more »

September books on my list

September books on my list

September 1, 2016 2016, books on my list . . . 2

But the list I make each month helps me not forget books. The Goodreads links help me keep track of these books. And I hope people reading my post may find some new books, too!… Read more »
