Mini-Bookmark Haul!

Today, I just wanted to do a very cute and simple blog post where I share some of the bookmarks that I have recently acquired. I absolutely love bookmarks, particularly beaded bookmarks, and I’m always on the prowl towards making my collection grow! I find a lot of comfort in the bookmarks that I use…

When I initially saw the cover for Britannia–written by Peter Milligan and illustrated by Juan José Ryp–I knew that I absolutely had to read this trade paperback graphic novel.
