Down The TBR Hole #2

Where have the last two weeks gone? I’m getting a little concerned about how quickly time seems to be passing at this point. I might actually have fallen down my tbr hole and only just managed to claw my way back out. This is my second forray into my to-read list. Lia at Lost In A Story started this weekly post to trim down the Goodreads to-read list. And although I may not have actually made my tbr smaller this week, it’s given me the chance to look through the books that are there and remind myself why I wanted to read them!

Yes, I do, but I didn’t have these books. I like knowing that my TBR pile is there, waiting to be read when I’m ready. At least if I’m borrowing books then I’m not splurging too much.

WWW Wednesdays

As a blogger, it turns out I’ve been set in my ways. I’ve been running What A Difference A Word Makes for a year now and, apart from a layout change a couple of months ago, it hasn’t really changed at all. I’ve fallen into the trap of a routine, which in my case makes me lazy. So I’ve set myself some blogging goals for 2017, and one of them was taking part in different memes. So, this is my first attempt to join in a meme. Forgive me if I make any blundering mistakes, I’m learning. WWW is hosted by Taking on the World of Words. Each Wednesday book enthusiasts share their read by answering three questions:
