Bookish Questions – How many books do you buy in a year?

By Andrea | August 2, 2016 |

How many books do you get/buy in a year? For myself, I try not to purchase more than a couple of books a month, though I admit to purchasing more than that when I see books that I just need to have.  Sometimes it’s because I’ve come upon a collection of Nancy Drew or Hardy…

By Andrea | July 12, 2016 |
