A quick little note

Hey friends and fellow book addicts!

I'm sorry I have been MIA as of late. There's been a lot going on for me and I haven't gotten much chance to read, write reviews or, you know, sleep!

I'm switching jobs at the moment as well so it's been a bit stressful. (in a good way!)

Anyway, I just want to say thanks for reading my reviews, commenting and being patient. I know there wasn't an "Out and About" last week, but I will start it again so get those pictures ready!
On that note, I usually take a bunch of pictures for Out and About. This one here is an "outtake" that I didn't use that week.

Happy Reading!
