Oh So Many Books

I probably missed all these really cool amazing blogs so sorry but, I probably wouldn’t be a book blogger without seeing these blogs before I started :)

So cooksbooks78, countingbooks, and bookprince tagged me to do the handwriting meme… pagesandwords, and ofliterarynature also recently tagged me to do the music shuffle meme. And since I’ve already done both I did a mash up of the two! A shuffle mix handwritten by yours truly. Thanks to all of you! Don’t look too closely at my chicken scratch ;)
