A Little Housekeeping Note…
We’ve decided to spend a lot less time on our Facebook Page and more time in friendlier & less toxic social spaces. (I think we could all use that, amiright?) If you don’t want to miss anything, be sure to sign up for our weekly newsletter, follow us on Instagram, or join our Super Reader Group. We’ve got some giveaways planned there and we don’t want you to miss them!
