More Books Purchased

*This one has its own picture because I got them after I’d already put the rest away. Plus, the book with the Breakfast at Tiffany’s photo on the cover is actually a journal. I am going to try to write in a book journal more often while I read, which should help me write better reviews on here.  So I thought buying a nice one would entice me to write in it more. (Can you tell I love Audrey Hepburn?! 😀 )
