I haven’t posted a WWW in a while. The holidays got really hectic, but I am starting to get back on track. Over the weekend, I posted my 2021 favorite reads and the 2022 reads I am looking forward reading. Plus, I just rebranded the online book club that I host monthly and put it up on Meetup. If anyone is interested, please join us – International Journey Through Pages. We read all genres and mostly focus on reading books and authors from other countries, especially books in translation.

I’m participating in a lot of readathons this October. Many of which are hosted on Litsy. These readathons will be totally dictating my reading life this month, which is new and different for me. I’m really looking forward to it.
