Domino’s Farms was mentioned and my guest, Joe, was kind enough to send in this original illustration to help the non-Michiganders better understand what happens at Domino’s Farms. It feels like I’m there…

My reading spreadsheets came up in our discussion. If you love spreadsheets and books as much as me, maybe you’ll appreciate these. The first is my TBR Tower tracking sheet and the bottom is tracking my reading habits to see if there was a pattern to my reading slumps. After writing all this out I realize March is a month I apparently don’t care to read.

TBR Tower spreadsheet. You better believe this is color coded based on the year I want to finish and colors noting what books are around 200 pages and beyond 700 pages.

Lastly, if you know anyone else who has completed the BBC reading challenge feel free to download and present them with this reading challenge certificate.
