I just finished reading Let The Great World Spin, by Colum McCann. He has incredible ways with words. I loved the book. I rated it 4 stars on my Goodreads page. I’m not going to ruin the book for anyone except to say that it is written similarly to the way the movie Crash is […]
I was gifted a very lovely bookstore giftcard for Christmas and I have been putting it to use. My Goodreads list is 200+ books long so I’ve purchased quite a few of my list items to read this year.
