FUNDAY MONDAY, OR THE BOOKS THAT WILL HELP ME SURVIVE THE WEEK AHEAD (MARCH 4, 2019)

funday-monday

Another work week begin!  I’ll run around like a man in a daze, frantically trying to fulfill all my commitments, while I dream of some future day when I will not have to struggle to steal an hour or two here and there to read.  But until that time comes, I’ll keep enjoying these brief interludes reading an old fantasy trilogy, Dragon Prince Trilogy, and a more recent anthology featured below.  Wish me luck!

    I’m curious about this anthology since the last one I read that included a Martin story just wasn’t that good. Looking forward to the reaction from Bookwraiths.
