What about you?
I’ve been wondering if I should stop doing the Monthly Reapings feature, as it seems to be even more unpopular than my book reviews! For those who don’t know, this feature is where I choose an author whose book is releasing that certain month and interview him/her. There’s also always a giveaway. This feature has only been done twice, and it doesn’t seem to be very popular. The latest one was with Nina de Gramont, author of Meet Me at the River. What do you guys think?
