mylibrary

“There is no friend as loyal as a book.”  ~ Ernest Hemingway So after [almost] completing the #Reverb10 Challenge back in December (I responded to all but 2 prompts) I clearly needed some other challenge to sign up for.  I just can’t help myself. This challenge is one near and dear to my heart because it involves something that I do all the time anyway – READING.

#reverb10 Day 30: Gift

December 30 – Gift Prompt: Gift. This month, gifts and gift-giving can seem inescapable. What’s the most memorable gift, tangible or emotional, you received this year? (Author: Holly Root) Best gift this year, hands down is the gift of being alive. I know it sounds incredibly cheesy, but it’s true. I feel somehow more grateful for the very simple fact of my life.
