This is my book blog, where I review books I read as part of Cannonball Read 15, where members compete to be the first to reach 52. We also try to get people excited about books and reading, and make money for cancer charities. This year, I will be reading and reviewing in memory of my friend Jennie Baxla, who passed away in 2022. As with last year, I hope to at least review 52 books, but I'll be happy to find time to read at all. Wish me luck!
