Kittens, I know it’s been awhile since we’ve indulged in book club time. This could be due to the fact that in the last two months, the amount of time I’ve had available for leisure reading has exponentially decreased. It could also be due to my renewed effort to avoid drowning in my bounty of magazine subscriptions.
Sometimes, we don’t need to know all the answers.
A word to the wise: When you ask for magazine subscriptions as a gift, choose a manageable number like two…or three. Not SIX.
So over my lunches, this is what I’ve been perusing lately.
