Beyond the Books 2018-02-15T00:15:02+00:00
Reading time 8 mins

Beyond the Books is a weekly meme where I throw out a prompt (mostly non-bookish), and we all blog about it. Come back here and share the link to your blog post. Then, we all have fun learning about each other.

* This idea was inspired by Novel Heartbeat‘s Life of a Blogger.

I will be posted on the new topic every Thursday. Below I will list upcoming topics so you can schedule your blog posts ahead, (and don’t forget to come back and add your post to the linky so everyone who plays along can see it, too). *Beyond the Books posts can be counted for the the 2018 Discussion Challenge.
