I Can’t Believe it’s Almost July!

What with the Covid Virus screwing up everyone’s lives and minds…. Let’s face it, how many of you are keeping track of the days?  I get up, run my errands and take care of the house.  I call my kids to check on all ten grands and then go back to reading a book, walking around the .88 mile track at a nearby park or just watch tv.

I hope that all of you are doing well and staying safe. This month I’m offering a few new to me authors and genres (not a fan of thrillers). So without further ado, here’s the July list for your edification.
