Saturday Conversations: Book Couples

Falling in Love One of the things I love about the online romance community is the never-ending discussion of the BOOK BOYFRIEND.

On the other hand, I actually liked it and thought it was… surprisingly good. Do those words ever slip out of your mouth? Why is […]

Going to the Library We are big fans of the library in my house. The kids and I visit our local library on average, every other week.
