It’s about…Continue Reading “Book Haul: April 2017”

I’m knee deep in essays and screenplays and the glorious Cornish, spring sun… Okay, so I’ve put a book limit on myself because of the ridiculous amount of books I’ve acquired over the years. But, I’m still me and going a whole month without buying at least one…Continue Reading “Book Haul: March 2017”
