Weekend Book Buzz – 21/22 July 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! I hope it’s warmer where you are this weekend. We’ve had sub-zero (below freezing) temperatures overnight this weekend, which is not very common in our area, so we’re REALLY feeling the cold this weekend! In fact, my poor fingers are having trouble typing today. They just can’t seem to get warm!

On the upside, it’s the perfect weather to snuggle up with a good book. I hope you get the chance, no matter what your weather is this weekend. ūüôā
