Read a book about love...

Why does my love of reading go in spurts? I hate that.

It's a difficult balancing act.

Instead, I'm going to give you a bunch of quick-fire, random, train-of-thought Snippets for Snippet Thursday: The Reckoning since I thought so long and hard about yesterday's post that I missed out on posting it yesterday. Whoops.
