Hello and welcome to November's Spell the Month in Books post! For this challenge, use the first letter of each book title to spell the current month (skipping articles such as A or The).

At least, I won't complain as long as the air conditioning keeps working! Today I am sharing July's #SpellTheMonthInBooks post. It's a completely digital version this month,... Continue Reading →
A few years ago my parents planted two Peony plants, transplanted from my grandparents who live in another state. They are now blooming for the first time in our yard, with huge, beautiful, fuchsia flowers! I thought they would make a nice backdrop for some book pictures, so I made up two bookstacks and headed... Continue Reading →
