Read at your own pace. Don't fret. Enjoy the words, the writing...

15. What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask? (Actually, leave the answer to this one in the comments on this post, huh? So I can find them when I need inspiration!) 

I will let it pass for now.

I don't eat during breakfast either. In fact, I don't read during any meal.

It's funny how we start to read less once we start blogging about our love of reading.
