The Book Lovers Tag

Hello, everyone! I have been seeing this tag post pop up everywhere lately and I thought I would give it a go. Why you may ask? Well because if there is one thing I like almost as much as reading it’s writing. So why not write about reading. You feel me?   Do you have a specific place for reading? My favorite place to read is in the cabin, with little distraction I can read a book in one weekend if it is chilly outside. So peaceful. Bookmarks or random pieces of paper? Bookmarks.  I have a few books…
