All things bookish!

It’s been a good week for reading but less so for writing – I’ve four books which I’ve read but not yet reviewed so you should see a bumper crop next week.  I heard on Friday that I’ve been accepted as a reviewer for another print magazine so that was the cue for a trip to the charity shop to celebrate.  I’ve been reviewing for a Christian women’s magazine for a while but the new one is secular and I’m looking forward to having that as a balance.  Of course, it means more books will be coming into the house and my book diet will suffer (let’s not talk about this week’s gain) but since I’d likely buy them anyway …
