Good morning and welcome to my weekly round up inspired by Novels and Nonfiction. I’ve been busy spending time with family and friends over on holiday, but I’ve still managed to find some lovely links for you this week.

  1. Thanks for including my link Nicki! The step-by-step guide for how to make a Goodreads DNF shelf is a great resource….many readers don’t know about this…and I went crazy trying to figure it out after someone mentioned it but didn’t give directions!

  2. Another fab post and thanks for including me. I’m just getting caught up on my blog reading now, I’ve had one of those really busy weeks! I’m also so behind on reading 📖📖 X
