Where did you come from, where did you go? Why aren’t you posting, K-Specks, yo?

Hello, lovelies! This is a super quick update/apology, because it has been 9 days without a post and I am WAY behind on things these days. Between the festivities associated with the holidays, family members coming in from out of town, polishing up my law school applications, and binge-watching to get through the end of Friends with my mom before it gets taken off Netflix on January 1st (no, I’ve never seen it before; yes, we’re on track to finish), I’ve been a little distracted. Since I’ve been off from work (see previous mention of holidays), I haven’t had the time on train rides to write posts like usual, and I was in the middle of five books but done with none of them.

Of course, if your recipient was international or something, you could send something from a site like Book Depository since their international shipping is good, but for most of us, the goal was to pass on a book you loved and/or thought your recipient would love.
