Three Months of Reading

A few months of reading www.onemorestamp.com

I have been so behind on these sort of posts!  Honestly it has felt like a very long dry spell with reading but when I started putting this post together I noticed that I was still reading plenty. Maybe I have been feeling this way because I have to struggle to choose a new book every single time.  I have hundreds of books on my TBR and I can't find a new book to read.  I am embarrassed for me.
