The days of sweltering heat are largely behind us, friends! I can see the sweaters and crisp mornings ahead, and I am SO excited. This quarter was a good one for me, filled with lots of new releases and some fantastic back-list titles. My reading slowed down a little, which is okay! I have no data to back this up, but I have a feeling that the cooler months are going to be the most productive for me, reading-wise. I had a great Q3 and I’m so excited to jump into the coziness of Q4!
