Today is Columbus Day in the United States (an unfortunate holiday, but I’m happy not to go to work!), and this weekend is Thanksgiving weekend in Canada. Happy holidays! Happy eating, happy resting, happy excursioning, and especially happy reading!
Some blog news first: We have a twitter account! We’re @bookadventurers – this is where we’ll be sharing our stories, posts, and links from now on.
We also have a Goodreads account, where we’ll be sharing our reviews and connecting with you all.
