Calendar Girls is a monthly blog event created by Melanie @ MNBernard Books, and Flavia @ Flavia the Bibliophile, and is now hosted by Katie @ Never Not Reading, and Adrienne @ Darque Dreamer Reads. It is designed to ignite bookish discussions among readers, and was inspired by the 1961 Neil Sedaka song, Calendar Girl.
Damn it! I was going to be on time this month!!! But somehow I completely missed it. (I have plenty of excuses – this month has been a whirlwind so far, but I won’t list them here) My only redeeming point, is that I am still 3 days earlier with my post that I was last month … soooo progress?
