October is coming

Voracious Reader

With the month of October I am going to open back up for review requests. I am going to do things a little bit different than when I first started. I could not believe the number of review requests I received the first time around. I though I would be sitting twiddling my thumbs. I mean who wants to hear from me, I’m not famous or anything.
