October 22, 2012 28 Comments
“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney to share with others what we’ve read the past week and planning to read next.
This weekend I had a book blogging meeting with some Dutch book bloggers. There were 8 of us and it was fun to talk about blogging, blogging schedules, our libraries at home and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold fry (by Rachel Johnson).
I’m looking forward to the Literary Giveaway Blog Hop that starts the coming weekend. You can still sign up to link up your blog with almost 50 others.
