Hey! Hi! Happy belated spring, and happy almost-April. I spend every day from basically November through March counting down the days to summer, so I'm pretty excited that it's feeling more imminent (even though I'm not sure where this winter went...)

The book I read was Juliet, Naked and it was … Continue reading Something About Nick Hornby And Music
