Monday Musings February 4, 2019

Dear Bookworms,

I hope everyone had a great reading weekend, I had a nice weekend but didn’t get that much reading done. I finished reading The Paris Winter by Imogen Robertson and made a little progress on An Unwanted Guest by Shari Lapena.

Reading Progress

I finished two non-fiction audio books last week, The Confidence Code by Katty Kay and Clairshipman and The $100 Startup by Chris Gillebeau.

All my plans to keep up with my blogging this week did not go according to plan because my boyfriend brought home a kitten. I have been wanting a cat for quite some time. So most of my attention has gone to her. Even as writing this post she keeps stepping on the keyboard making it difficult to blog. Her name is Kitty. I know, how very orginal. Lol Well, enough about Kitty and on with the rest of the post. 

PageHabit is an awesome monthly book subscription service. It is in my opinion the best book subscription service. Even though I haven’t received any other book box but I have watched many unboxing videos for other companies and this the only were I felt the need to get one.
