Real Things

Dearest Fans, Watchers, Listeners & Readers,

I have been moving house and home across the country and, as you may have noticed, I have been unavailable to read and make regular video book reviews.

During this time, you have been continuing to respond to me here and on YouTube insisting that the work I choose to read and the reviews I choose to create are different and special to you. I am going back to school now and will have less time to dedicate here but I still want to continue this blog and get back to a regular schedule, though I might not make it back to a weekly schedule. Thank you for inspiring me to continue!

Stay tuned and I’ll be up and running soon. Same desk, different background.

Yours,

BLB
