Happy Tuesday!! Today's Top Ten Tuesday topic (hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl) asks us to share ten signs you're a book lover. Since I'm currently in my first year of law school, I thought it would be fun to share these signs from a law school perspective. In the United States, you can pretty …

Dear 84, CHARING CROSS ROAD by Helene Hanff: YOU MAKE MY INNER BOOKWORM SO HAPPY.

Dear 84, Charing Cross Road by Helene Hanff: It seems fitting that I write this review in the form of a letter to you, since you yourself are a book comprised of letters.
