2015 Reading Challenge: Week 10
I've had very little time to read this past week - lots of dye studio tasks I'm working on right now. I did start East, recommended to me by a bookish friend, and am thoroughly enjoying it. (It's a retelling of the East of the Sun, West of the Moon fairy tale and it's brilliantly done.) Hoping to get a little more reading time this week while puppy-sitting the new little one for D in the afternoons - but we'll see how that plan goes.....
