The last month of the year is here, and so it’s time to play a particular game:“Take the first line of each month’s post over the past year and see what it tells you about your blogging year.”It’s an idea that started with The Indextrious Reader a few years ago, and is hosted this year at Beyond Eden Rock. I came across it at Brona's Books.
Note: Most of my posts begin with a title, author, and star rating. I have omitted that info here.
