My bookish rambles, November 22nd, 2020: organizing TBRs, and buying books!

We are more than two thirds of the way through November, which is crazy, because there are so many things that I wanted to do this month that I still need to do. But I still have eight days, and will be making the most of the week left of this month. Which means writing until my fingers are exhausted and until my brain melts.

My Bookish Rambles is a feature on my blog where I talk about all sorts of bookish things! I write about topics that I’m interested in, and also answer questions that you all send to me, and write about things you want to know my opinion on.

I originally had this as a weekly thing, on Sundays, which is what I have written in my introduction post, but now, I’m probably just going to do them every other week, and maybe not always on Sundays. really whenever I have lots of random bookish thoughts.

You can always read my introduction post, for more information about this feature!

Hey there! I got a lot of schoolwork done today, which was good, so I’ve had time to write this. It’s been over two months though, since sheltering in place began which seems really crazy.
