Top Ten Tuesday #6: Read in one…

I haven’t done a Top Ten Tuesday for a long while, and as usual I’m kind of late to the party, but I liked the sound of this one. Today, the folk at The Broke and the Bookish are asking for top ten books read in one sitting (or thereabouts), which immediately brought a few great books […]
