Wandered into DollarTree and found Caesar’s Last Breath, for a dollar of course. I had never heard of it but LT rates it at 4+ stars.

Amazing poet, Danusha Lameris. Daughter shared her poem ‘Feeding the Worms’ and I had to see more. The Moons of August came in the mail.

It hasn’t arrived yet, but I couldn’t resist The Book of Mini. It has a tiny replica of itself secured in a sleeve on the inside of the cover.
