Processed with VSCO with g3 preset

All of the information I’m sharing is what I’ve learned from the Federal Trade Commission’s website here. And you can actually email endorsements@ftc.gov with more questions.

I love using my blog to keep track of my own reading habits. I recently joined a Book Club on Instagram called Diverse Classics that, obviously, celebrates Diverse Classics.

November Reading Wrap-up

I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed with my reading this month. I am not very good at following TBRs and I got into a reading slump at the end of the month. Any reading is good reading but I was planning to read more books by Indigenous authors. I only read one though I am a chunk through The Round House by Louise Erdrich.
