The Program

I’ll be the first to admit, I’m not exceptionally gifted in the area of organization. The fact that I’ve actually managed to come up with a focussed blog is nothing short of a miracle. However, I’ve realized that I also need to narrow down the focus. Blogging about books all the time might be fun,…
