I do not … Continue reading #LetsDiscuss2021 #3 – Multiple Timelines: Brilliant or Bogus? – #DiscussionSunday.

TCL’s Life According to Literature Tag 2020 Version.

I recently noticed that Annabookbel did a "My Life in Books" tag for 2020, and I remembered that I did one like it in 2019 and enjoyed it, but that was called "Life According to Literature" and it had slightly different prompts.
