Slight Change

Hi all. Things are crazy at the moment; we're variously working from home, self isolating or work has closed down. Although we plan to keep posting reviews, we're going to skip #Bookpost - as we're not receiving physical books now anyway - and possibly #BookBirthday, unsure as yet.

We still want to talk about brilliant books and fantastic reads, so keep tuning in! We'll have a massive #Bookpost session when this is all over.

Stay strong, everyone.
