Weekend Book Buzz – 25/26 November 2017

Weekend Book Buzz

Hello, dear readers! Welcome to the last weekend in November! 😳 Sorry if you just stumbled a bit there. Perhaps I should have warned you to sit down for before just blurting that out! But it’s true. As I type this it is, it is one month until Christmas. And suddenly I feel like I have about three months of activity to fit into the next four-and-a-bit weeks. So let’s all take a deep breath together—ready: *breathe in slowly through nose, two…three…four… and exhale through the mouth, two…three…four…*

Feeling better? Then let’s get to it!
