  1. You got Six of Crows because I recommended it. 😉

    Hope you enjoyed it!

    • That’s right – I should have remembered.

      I read one chapter but then wasn’t motivated to read more. I’m still not sure if it was just a bad fit for my mood at that time, or if it’s not the book for me. I’m not opposed to giving it another try some other time.

  2. You got a copy of READING PEOPLE! Yay! I may choose the PS PARIS one too from the Kindle First options. I haven’t decided yet.

  3. Enjoy Reading People. I can’t wait to hear what you think. I’ll share my September TBR when I get around to posting it. Ugh! So busy lately. I haven’t been doing much reading except Babysitters Club graphic novels. Haha.
