The #reversereadathon is officially over. I had a wonderful time and am really happy with my accomplishments. I had made no reading plans. The only goal I set myself was to get back into the swing of things and get out of my reading slump. I think I got there. I read nearly 950 pages… Continue reading Aaaand that’s a wrap
Hi bookish fam, I hope everyone's readathon is going great. I'm quite pleased with my progress.
